Scarifier guide

Scarify – the secret of well-kept lawns

Regular mowing alone is not sufficient if one racedesired, which pleases the eye demanding lawn-lover. In the course of time, the lawn increasingly looses and more and more gaps are created on which stubborn weeds spread. If a rich, gapless green is desired, it should be scarred once or twice a year. This word is composed of vertical and to cut together. That is, the lawn surface is scored perpendicular to this operation. This will remove remnants of old clippings that have not been thoroughly removed, mosses and dead roots. The growth of the grass plants is stimulated again. In the past, in the parks, the castles attracted hordes of hardworking gardeners to do the work with Harken. Anyone who has ever tried it knows how sweaty and time-consuming the scarifying can be by hand.

It is much easier with one Verticutter , The first devices of this kind can be visited in the American Penn State University in the Mascaro-Steiniger Turfgrass Museum. Thomas Mascaro has the first in 1955 Verticutter developed. Over time, the devices have been continually improved so that hobby and professional gardeners today can choose from a variety of models. The scoring is done by several sharp cutting discs, which are arranged offset. The are driven Verticutter optionally by an electric or gasoline engine. If you would like to use the device in an inhabited area, an electric scarifier is preferable because it does not bother your neighbors. He causes no waste gas and works quietly. Where no power connection is available, a gasoline Vertukutierer is used. The purchase of a petrol scarifier is also recommended if you have very large lawns to maintain. The petrol scarifiers are more powerful than their electric-powered brothers.

How to conjure rich green

When the first spring in nature starts in spring, the best time is for scarifying. At this time, the grass is particularly vigorous and is stimulated by the scoring of the soil surface for increased growth. It should be too deep Verticutter do not cut. The optimum is a cutting depth of 2 mm – 4 mm. If the soil is very hard, it can be helpful to use the Verticutter for example, by applying a sandbag to complain. The knives separate the dead plant parts underground and transport them to the surface. If the scarifier is equipped with a collecting bag, you save a lot of time and effort. Otherwise, the clippings must be raked off after scarifying.

You may be a little disappointed if you look at the lawn after work. At first, the sight is not very encouraging. But you can be sure that the effort was worth it. The grass roots are stimulated in this way to new growth and soon you can look forward to a fresh, rich green. If there is great dryness at the time of scarifying, you should water the lawn after completing the work. Incidentally, scarifying is the best time to apply the necessary fertilizer. If larger or smaller gaps have formed in the lawn over time, you may find something there after scarifying lawn grass seedsto distribute. It may be useful to repeat this work in the fall. However, you should not be overly zealous. Scarifying is only recommended for well-rooted grass plants. On a lawn that is less than three years old, it would be counterproductive.
