Have you ever wondered why even after raking your lawn and removing some moss from the surface of your lawn, you are still left with an impoverished lawn? That is because beneath the moss lies a thicker and nastier layer called thatch, which is much harder to get rid of. Simply using a rake would not be sufficient in removing thatch from your landscape, and requires special equipment and expertise to scarify your lawn and bring it back to its healthy state.
The process of removing the stubborn layer of thatch from your lawn is known as scarification. It involves the use of a lawn scarifier (which differs depending on the intensity and type of thatch that is poisoning your green space), which removes surface thatch that might create a mossy environment in your lawn. For subsurface thatch, you can visit our aeration page which details the process of aeration that helps to alleviate this problem by removing cores and plugs in the ground that prevents your green spaces from receiving vital resources. Scarification is only required when the thatch layer that forms on your lawn naturally gets too thick and prevents important resources like water and oxygen from reaching the grass roots. Your plants will ultimately suffer in the long run without proper monitoring of the thatch layer that forms on your landscape.
Proper analysis and deduction
The most common way of knowing if your lawn needs to undergo scarification will be a mossy and spongy feeling when you step on the lawn. However, to attain proper knowledge of the condition of your lawn, we need to use specialised tools and techniques to give you a fair evaluation for the service that you spend on. This involves retrieving some core samples from your ground and measuring how much thatch has accumulated above the soil line, amongst other ways of evaluation. At the end of the day, we never want to provide our patrons with information without thorough analysis of your green properties, so that you can get the best out of our lawn treatment services.
We understand that no matter how much planning you do, it would not matter if you do not find the right lawn care team to carry out the plan for you. We recognised this point from the very beginning and that led to an experimental approach that we have taken for all our projects. Basically, what we would do for your lawn has been done and tested by our professional group in our own testing area and we recorded all the results from these experiments. We use the plans that have the best results as the way to go in treating the damages that have been done to your landscape. Thatch removal by scarification will lead to a substantial change to your lawn, and that process would require a lot of work and time. Therefore, we do not want to waste your time or money on useless plans that do not bear fruits, or overextending the scarification process to other parts of the lawns that are perfectly fine. Therefore, perfect execution is a priority for us, as we never want to produce unpleasant results for our patrons and tarnish our reputation.
