Scarification is a process we undertake to help improve your lawn.

lawn scarification

It is a machine which rakes out layers of dead thatch in the lawn (old grass that has built up like a thatched roof).

Although it is quite invasive, and can leave lawns looking messy for a few weeks, the end results are more than worth it.

If a lawn is scarified regular then it will only need a typical scarify.  These types of scarify remove thatch and leave the lawn looking fairly good.  Within 2 to 3 weeks they look great usually.

If a lawn has not been scarified for quite some time then it will need a heavier scarification to remove the deeper thicker layers of thatch.  Unfortunately you will often have some grass shoots removed, and may have a few small fairly bare areas.  These can simply be overseeded and with proper care you will see new grass coming through in 1 to 2 weeks.

Heavier scarifies will need more TLC to help with recovery but you can expect to see a nicer lawn in around 6 to 8 weeks.  If you maintain good lawn care then deeper heavier scarifies may not always be needed.
