with RYOBI’s 18V Scarifier. Scarifying and aerating your lawn is a simple, yet highly beneficial, way to keep your lawn happy and healthy. It removes the layer of dead grass and moss, called thatch, that sits on top of the soil and prevents rainwater from draining deep under the ground where it is needed the most. The Scarifier gently perforates the soil to breathe life back into your lawn and promote growth.
Overtime, our lawns become full of moss and other debris which prevents rain, sunshine, and nutrients from keeping grass roots healthy. The consequences of not removing the debris can be devastating, leaving your lawn looking soggy and dull. To help keep your lawn healthy, Ryobi has launched the 18V ONE+ Brushless Scarifier - the tool you need to create the perfect lawn.

SCARIFY YOUR LAWN
The scarifier is important to reduce the layers of thatch in the lawn which can prevent water and fertiliser from penetrating the roots of the grass.
AERATE YOUR LAWN
The aerator reel (sold separately) uses thin metal tines to remove light debris from your lawn, whilst also perforating the soil to allow oxygen, water, and nutrients reach grass roots.
Scarifying your lawn is an extremely beneficial procedure to keep your grass in a good and healthy condition. For best results, it's important to scarify and aerate your lawn at the right time of year and in the right conditions. Please follow our guide below to learn about when to scarify and when to aerate.
In winter months the conditions are too cold to scarify or aerate, so avoid it at all costs. This grass and turf goes dormant during the cold and growth all but stops. If we were to scarify or aerate the lawn in the winter, chances are moss will invade or water could cause damage and your lawn might not recover.
Get your lawn prepared for winter by scarifying and aerating it in the autumn.
Then wake up your lawn after the winter by scarifying and aerating it in the spring.
It’s spring, which means it is time to “wake up” your lawn after accumulating dampness and moss during the cold winter months. Light scarifying is recommended in the spring as the grass can be delicate after a long winter. Heavy scarifying is recommended in the autumn.
After scarifying, attach the aerator reel and aerate the lawn. The aeration lets oxygen, water, and fertiliser reach the roots to stimulate root growth, and ensure a green and healthy looking lawn.
Attach your aerator reel to your unit—its time to aerate! Why? Because we need to breathe life into the lawn and alleviate soil compaction. The aerator reel gently scores the lawn to help oxygen and nutrients reach grass roots. It’s will also gently remove any light debris or dead grass from the top. This helps the roots grow deeply to produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn.
Autumn is the perfect time to re-start your lawn treatment and stimulate grass growth after a long summer getting great use out of your garden.
First, you need to scarify your lawn to remove the layers of thatch which accumulated over the summer. As a reminder, this thatch can prevent water and nutrients from penetrating the roots of the lawn. You can go a little deeper in autumn as the soil and ground will still be warm enough, so select a lower height setting on your scarifier.
After scarifying, attach the aerator reel and aerate the lawn to ensure oxygen and nutrients reach grass roots. Aeration is especially important in autumn as it will help your lawn survive the winter and more extreme conditions such as water-logging or drought.
Your first time scarifying and aerating your lawn can be a little daunting. Here are our top tips and suggestions to help you do the job better.
To ensure the perfect lawn you should scarify your lawn twice a year, once in spring and once in autumn. You should also aerate it three times a year, once in spring and autumn and once more in summer.
