Lawn scarification is the process of removing what’s known as surface thatch from the lawn. This material stops necessary moisture, air and nutrients getting to the roots of your grass, inhibiting its growth and resulting in a less healthy lawn overall. By removing thatch you improve the levels of oxygen and water that can be absorbed by the lawn, but as well as that any treatments applied will be far more successful. It also helps to reduce the amount of moss on your lawn.
