Scarification (Dethatching) should be a regular process on your lawn and is best carried out in the Autumn and Spring months. It is the removal of surface thatch, a thick organic layer of material that wedges between your grass and the soil. If it gets too thick it can stop water and air from penetrating through to the soil, encouraging insect growth and festering lawn disease.
If your lawn shows considerable wear, is thick and spongy or browns off quickly when dry, your lawn may have a thatch problem and most likely needs scarifying. We often over sow with grass seed to promote a healthier lawn for the coming year.
