Verticuteren van uw gazon is het verwijderen van puin en mos dat de wortels kan verstikken. Door uw bodem te beluchten voor een betere zuurstofopname zal uw gras sterker en sneller groeien.
Scarifying your lawn is the process of clearing debris and moss that can choke the roots. Aerating your soil for improved oxygen absorption will make your grass grow stronger and faster.
The best time to scarify depends on how intensively you use your garden. Anytime between April to September is suitable, but remember: your lawn will need some time to recover.
For this reason, most people choose to scarify during the early part of spring when the lawn is in minimal use; preparing the grass and soil for that fabulous summer perfection.
Aerating your lawn and moss control
Scarifying is most beneficial when there’s a layer of moss covering the ground below the grass blades’ tips. In addition to moss, you may find other garden debris such as fallen leaves and organic matter, which clogs up your soil.
If your lawn is relatively moss free, you could postpone the task until next year. If the lawn thatch is 2cm or more in height, it’s time to scarify!
How To Scarify A Lawn?
Scarifying could be an Olympic sport: it’s exhausting but good for your health. Your grass probably feels the same way – because scarification is a stressful activity for your lawn. Therefore, you must fertilise well before you scarify, then mow your lawn to 4cm. Two weeks later, cut the grass to 3cm, and as soon as the grass is dry, you can get started.
Adjust your scarifying tool so that the blades penetrate the earth to around 2-3mm. Then drive the device evenly over the lawn – first lengthways, then across (or vice versa).
At this stage, remove the moss and organic debris and fill in any bald spots with fast-growing lawn seed.
Your lawn will initially look a little sorry for itself but will spring back to life in no time. Give your lawn a break until it’s showing signs of recovery.
