If your mum is green-fingered and quite ‘hands-on’ in the garden, she will be gearing up for scarification! All gardeners know scarifying is an essential part of lawn maintenance, and even if she’s not the most avid gardener, we’re sure she prides herself on having a lush, green lawn.
Scarifying your lawn is best done in late March to early April, when the environmental conditions are optimal for healthy grass growth. Thatch, is the build-up of organic material, which prevents the essential daylight and water, from reaching the grass. This, in turn prevents healthy grass growth making your lawn susceptible to pests and diseases…not what you want if your mum likes to throw a garden party!
Handheld lawn rakes are very much something of the past now, and Flymo comes to the rescue once again with its electric lawn rake! It removes all the back-breaking manual work, with its variety of collection heights, from -5mm which allows the rake to scratch beneath the surface and up to +8mm above, making moss and thatch removal quick and easy.
As if Flymo didn’t do enough already, we also collect leaves! Taking the manual labour out of those boring gardening tasks, a Flymo electric lawn rake is the multi-purpose gardening tool, your mum really shouldn't have to live without. Set the collection height to the highest setting and watch as the leaves disappear from your lawn.
