Hi All,
Just bought a scarifier aerator. Wondering what order to I carry out the tasks.
Should I apply weed and feed or something first on the lawn and when the moss dies off then use the scarifier?

Any help appreciated. I have a moss filled, waterlogged lawn and aim to resolve this year.

If it's a good tough model, you could scarrify then weed n' feed then scarify, then sort out the drainage. Before feeding though, make sure your grass that's left is strong enough to take a feed and not too scraggly and thin. Scarifying first will let you see what sort of grass you will be left with and whether or not you need to sow some grass seed.
Bill.
