During a hot summer such as the one coming to a close, many factors can negatively affect a lawn. Overexposure to the sun, water shortage, trampling and diseases may gradually thin out your grass until it disappears.
While waiting for temperatures to drop in order to allow overseeding, we can clear the ground, getting it ready to receive new seeds by carrying out two operations: dethatching the lawn and scarifying the soil. Meanwhile, we should not forget that when cutting grass in such high temperatures, it should be kept tall (at least 5 cm).
Dethatching is an operation to remove undergrowth comprising dry grass, dead plant residues, leaves and any debris deposited on the ground. Too much thatch will make overseeding and fertilising operations difficult, and will prevent light and air from penetrating. With its high working speed and continuous vibration of springs, the BM60 spring rake, from Bellon Mit, carries out this operation by removing thatch from the ground without clogging the springs.
Scarifying the soil, by contrast, involves gently breaking up the ground. It’s an essential procedure for revitalising a lawn, but also a delicate operation that must be carried out using specific machines and by professionals in the field to avoid any risk of damaging the grass. What is the solution? It lies in two codes: BM40 and BM50.
BM40 is a professional scarifier with fixed-blade collection, designed and manufactured by Bellon Mit in order to ensure excellent performance in all conditions. In addition, the collector with hydraulic discharge, allows any removed matter to be stored for easier disposal.
BM50 is a professional fixed-blade scarifier. With its fixed-blade system, the blades can be replaced without disassembling the drive belt and rotor, simply by replacing the worn blades.
