What is Scarification and why do I need to scarify my lawn?

Green Mile Lawn Care in Aldershot, Hampshire offer a Lawn Scarification Service. Lawn scarification helps to promote strong root growth resulting in a thicker, lusher lawn. This is ideally undertaken early Spring for the best results.

Overtime your lawn will suffer from a build up of organic matter which will eventually form a thatch layer which lays on the surface of your lawn.


Overtime your lawn will suffer from a build up of organic matter which will eventually form a thatch layer which lays on the surface of your lawn.

Thatch mostly comes from grass clippings and any other dead or decaying mater. If this is allowed to build up it will become excessive and have a damaging effect on your lawn, as it will weaken the grass and encourage the growth of both weeds and moss.

Spring is the ideal time to scarify a lawn

It is therefore important that the scarification of your lawn is only carried out at the appropriate time to enable your lawn to fully recover.

After scarification of your lawn it is the ideal time to overseed the lawn. Doing this will introduce more grass into the lawn, thicken the sward, reduce moss and reduce weeds.

At Green Mile Lawn Care Ltd we can advise you if your lawn needs scarification but most lawns will benefit from scarification every 2 -3 years depending on soil and weather conditions.

The Green Mile Lawn Care Ltd Scarification Service is quick, affordable and highly efficient, so So why not take advantage of our FREE lawn analysis.
