Attempted to have a go at my thatchy rubbishy lawn this evening with a plastic rake. 45 mins later tonnes of thatch and managed about a ten foot patch. Blisters and knackered. Don't want to buy an electric one as i don't mind a bit of work and i have a horrid record with electric garden tools. There seem to be lot of cheap manual roller types about but i'd prefer something a bit better quality. Any recommendations?
Mine looks like this after an electric scarifier - bare patches of soil and thatch.
I didn't have any moss in the lawn.
It soon comes back
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
I'll stick manual. It's not just electric tools that hate me. Petrol lawn mowers hate me as well.
Yeah mine doesn't have much moss either. Just years of thatch and not doing anything other than mowing occasionally. I try to only mow every 4 or 5 weeks and don't mind leaving the clover patches for the bees.
