How to scarify a lawn?

Our tutorial will teach you everything you need to know about scarifying a grass. We assure that nothing about it is even remotely scary.

1. REMOVE THE GRASS

The first step is always to cut the grass with your lawn mower. You have to do this gradually.

2. ELIMINATE WEEDS

'Then, begin weeding thoroughly, eradicating any larger weeds first.' Unless your lawn has weeds, pluck them out by hand rather than using a weedkiller.

3. SCARIFY WITH A HAND SCRIFIER OR RAKE.

Keep in mind that dry grass should be used for the scarification procedure.

4. SUBMERGE THE LAWN ALL NIGHT

This procedure is critical since scarification is usually performed prior to reseeding, and lawn seed adheres better to well-hydrated turf.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SCARIFY A LAWN?

Autumn is by far the best season for scarifying your lawn because success is dependent on speedy recovery.

SHOULD YOU SCARIFY A LAWN THAT’S WET OR DRY?

Water your lawn a few days before scarification, and avoid scarifying a wet lawn.

Does the grass need to be dry to scarify?

Scarification works best when the lawn is somewhat moist - not too wet or too dry.

How many times a year should you scarify?

Scarification should be done at least once a year to remove any organic matter that has accumulated around the base of your grass, such as thatch and moss.
