Harrowing is one of the most important jobs on the paddock maintenance calendar. Rolling helps to level areas where poaching has occured and encourages growth and spread. Using either a spring tine or set of chain harrows, the benefits to your grassland are as follows: -

  • Removal of old, dead grass
  • Allows light and air into the soil
  • Encourages new growth
  • Levels out areas of poached ground
  • Discourages weed growth

Aeration

  • Allows for better / stronger grass which can result in less weeds
