Kieron and Joss spent the day, the first of many over the next few weeks, working on the lawn in the front quad. Their task to scarify the lawn, removing all the thatch that has built up over the years.
Joss, using the Dennis mower that has had its cutting cartridge replaced with a scarifying cartridge, starts on the lawn first. Kieron, following behind with the Allett mower, picks up the scarified grass that has been pulled up from the lawn. This process will be repeated again and again, the heights of the cut reduced after each completed lawn cut, so far the cutting height has been reduced from 16mm to just 8mm.
