Single scarification means we run the machine over the lawn once to thin the sward (lawn) if the lawn is too dense.
Normal scarification is when we go over the lawn in one direction and then the other direction to thin the sward and remove thatch and moss.
Heavy Scarification is when we keep going over the surface of the lawn until we have removed the required amount this is generally when removing large amounts of moss. The process will inevitably tear up the lawn to the extent that over seeding is necessary to regenerate a new lawn.
Verticutting is when we use a fixed blade cassette to cut the surface of the lawn. This is carried out when over seeding or to promote root development and lateral growth. It also aerates the lawn surface.
Heritage can advise you if your lawn requires scarifying but most lawns benefit from scarifying at least every 2 – 3 years depending on soil and weather conditions. Lawns can take several weeks to recover after the treatment but it is an essential part of the renovation process.
We also offer additional lawn care services which your lawn may benefit from. These include seasonal lawn treatments, lawn scarification, lawn aeration, lawn over seeding, pest control, disease control, lawn renovation and driveway weed control.
