It is good practice to mow the lawn after Scarifying; this removes any tufts, levels off the grass and may lift off a little more loose moss and thatch. Once spring comes do not wait until thewhole lawn is recovered before mowing.

Should I scarify or aerate my lawn first? Mow the lawn before scarifying. If you regard scarifying as too intensive for your lawn, you can also aerate it_before winter. With aerating, steel springs comb the surface of the lawn without penetrating the soil too deeply. Unwanted moss and lawn thatch is thus removed.

Is it possible to overseed a lawn? Overseeding is spreading grass seed over an existing lawn. Done right, it's a straightforward process that gets results. As grasses mature, thinning is normal—especially if you enjoy your lawn and use it often. Overseeding keeps your lawn competitive and steeped in youth and vigor, without starting over fromscratch.

How can I thicken my lawn?

  1. Improve Your Soil. To get the most out of every step to a thicker lawn, take a tip from lawn pros and test your soil.
  2. Overseed. Overseeding is simply sowing grass seed into existing grass to make thin lawns thick—or keep them from getting thin.
  3. Fertilize.
  4. Boost Your Lawn.
  5. Irrigate.
  6. Mow Properly.
  7. Control Weeds.

What is the difference between scarifying and dethatching? What I thought the difference was is that thatching pulls up all the thick under layment which scarifying also does but scarifying is supposed to slice the roots and soil allowing for penetration of food and water. Seems to be the same thing. Dethatching is most beneficial in thespring.
