Scarification

Thinning out thatch using the Scarification process

It is very common for lawns in time to suffer from over-application of fertiliser and this is where lawn scarification is needed. Along with excessive mowing, this can lead to a build-up of thatch, which manifests itself as a matted mess of dead grass and roots. Excessive thatch stops water from being able to drain away and in time it will have a negative impact on the quality of your grass. Thatch also creates the ideal condition for things like disease and moss to thrive and prevents your grass from flourishing.

The solution for a build-up of thatch is scarification. This involves the removal of surface thatch to allow better airflow, moisture and nutrients to reach and penetrate the roots.

The outcome of lawn scarification is healthier grass and reduced moss whilst increasing tilling and helping with worm control in the soil.

Scarification should be carried out regularly on lawns to control the quality of growth and future proof the survival of a healthy lawn.

We provide professional scarification services for residents across Suffolk and Essex to help them make light work of maintaining their lawns for a healthier and more attractive garden.

    Testimonials

    Hedge Trimming

    What a fabulous job your guys did on my hedging. Thanks again for such a prompt overall service and the standard of work. I feared I might have to lose all or part of the hedge as it had become terribly overgrown and top heavy but the end result is very,
    very impressive.

    Tree Cutting

    I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending T&LC. From their initial visit and the recommendations they made, to the speed with which they obtained permission from the Council and then the extensive tree surgery itself they were supremely professional, hugely knowledgeable and a pleasure to have around doing the work.

    – Ian Gale
    Lawn

    Strongly recommend the Tree & Lawn Company. They supplied and laid a new front lawn to fit around a new driveway. Excellent professionalism by all the team producing a first class finish. The borders were then set off with two layers of bark/mulch. Very pleased with every aspect and will use again.
