Lawn scarification is a process that uses machinery to vertically cut into the sward and remove excessive thatch grass.
Thatch grass is the layer of organic matter that is found on and below the surface of the soil. Too much can choke the grass and act like a sponge that prevents air water and nutrients from reaching the grassroots. It is slow to decay and therefore, forms a thick layer that will need to be removed.
But how do you know when to scarify lawns? If done incorrectly, scarifying lawn can actually damage the grass. That’s why you should put your faith in the green hands of a professional lawn care company. Mow & Grow has years of experience in lawn scarification and understanding of when to scarify lawns.
