Scarification: A Guide To Scarifying Your Lawn

Scarification is a process best described as a mechanical raking of the lawn. Its main purpose is to remove excess thatch and moss caused by dead leaves and debris that has accumulated in the lawn. At Greensleeves, we use a high quality, professional scarifying machine that contains a series of sharp tungsten blades which rotate at a high speed to slice into the lawn in a vertical direction. This specialised machine should not be mistaken for the typical machine available on the domestic market, which is more of a lawn rake. Our intensive, industrial scarifying machine will result in a much more effective treatment than using a DIY tool.
