An electric scarifier is effective ....prob better than a rake because a rake can be bloomin' hard work quarkrad.  

some scarifiers have height adjustment but be aware you could damage the lawn itself by too low setttings. I would prefer to scarify in autumn and in spring on high setting.

Yes, agree it is fascinating.  Sometimes amusing too as we need to be aware of how literally everything is taken.  Used to do a garden for someone with aspergers too and it was difficult to say the least at times.  However, easing off when confrontation looms, some lateral thinking, seeing when stress is building up, etc., etc., and I have learned an awful lot about myself in the process too.  

Those with aspergers suffer huge frustration frequently....often they are extremely bright or gifted.  

One I have a lot of contact with has trust in me and confides in me....talking  ( listening) is still the best therapy in the world I think.  Don't think many spare the time for this though even the professionals

I know something about autism, esp aspergers.  Support a friend's son now and then and attended a few "classes".  Far more complicated than it seems.  Aspergers is far from rare too.  Helping or working with someone with aspergers requires lots of patience and understanding ......prob good for all of us to do

Morning Slevin, I think that makes a lot of sense.  Taking your time and assessing your situation, light levels etc is the way to go

Will be a disaster Sunnygardener.  I share your impatience for spring but winter will still have a big say yet.

Quiet, dry and bright moon as I walked to the beach earlier.  Calm before the storm .....Frank looks angry for tonight and tomorrow
