Commissioning / preparations

The Bosch scarifier must first be set up. The first steps are already pre-assembled, so fortunately only the handle and the collecting basket have to be assembled. Right from the start, the collection container is a positive feature, as its size allows it to collect a large amount of moss and weeds.

Bosch_Vertikutierer_1100_Erfahrungen-a0f9a231

What preparations do I have to make?

The first step is to level the lawn up maximum 4 cm to mow. Before scarifying can be started, the correct depth set to get rid of annoying weeds and moss. The depth can be conveniently adjusted up to 10 mm using a lever (alternatively up to a height of 5 mm).

Bosch_Verticutter_Amazon_kaufen-0c1f8181

I advise that you don't start too deep at first, rather start high and then carefully work your way down. Because the deeper you start, the more soil is mixed and you only want to remove weeds and moss.

How do I scarify correctly?

Once all preparations have been made, scarifying can begin. Here I give a step-by-step guide so that nothing goes wrong.

First of all, it is important that consistently, without stopping in between, is scarified. The scarifier should move quickly across the lawn in one movement perpendicular direction be driven. Once this is done, the next track is approached initially in a vertical direction.

Occasionally the Empty collection container, so that residual weeds are prevented from being pushed back onto the lawn when the container is too full.

While scarifying, check again and again whether the necessary depth fits. Alternatively, you should adjust the depth.

Once the lawn has been completely scarified in a vertical direction, if the lawn is neglected, the process can now also be horizontal direction respectively. This step is useful when the lawn is heavily infested with moss and weeds.

If this step is also done, you can now go to bald spots reseeded fertilizer also helps to quickly achieve a great visual appearance of the lawn. A thorough and regular irrigation is now needed here.

What should I put attention on?

When scarifying, it is important that the lawn dry is to get the best result. Ironically, if the soil is too dry, it is detrimental to the scarifier blades.

Please note that a significant large amount of grass and weed debris can arise and a trip to the disposal site may be useful.

When scarifying, it is important that webs really takes place without stopping. Otherwise the result is that the knives may not cut, but rather tear.

It is also important that initially twisted in one direction and then, if necessary, in the other direction. This has the advantage that really every form of weed can be eliminated.
