Turf scarifying helps dethatch grass and allows important nutrients to seep into the roots, resulting in a better quality surface. At Turfcare and Hire, our turf scarifying equipment is at the forefront of the industry, offering a faster and more cost-efficient process.
There are two main applications where turf scarifying benefits the surface.
Improving bounce in cricket wickets
We recommend scarifying your cricket wicket in the transition from footy to cricket season. Turf scarifying is an important process that removes thatch from the wicket for better bounce and ball roll in the pitch, all pitches need a bit of work once the cover comes off.
Turfcare and Hire has more than 15 years’ experience in specialised turf scarifying as part of cricket wicket reconstruction.
Reducing thickness of couch grass
Couch grass can become quite thick. Scarifying helps thin the surface of the grass removing excess thatch and debris such as leaves or stones, allowing better nutrient and water absorption for a healthier surface.
We recommend turf scarifying for your couch grass at the start of every spring.
We’ve worked with schools, local sporting clubs and municipal councils including the City of Greater Geelong, providing turf scarifying as part of ongoing maintenance or oval renovation projects.
