Everything you need to know about scarifying a lawn is covered in our tutorial. Nothing about it is even somewhat threatening, we guarantee.
The first step is always to cut the grass with your lawn mower. You have to do this gradually.
Next, get down to thorough weeding, removing any larger weeds first. ‘Unless there are weeds on your lawn, pull them out by hand rather than using a weedkiller.
Remember that the scarification process should be done on dry grass.
