help help can you give me a word for a machine used to rake the moss out of grass..?? In Dutch it is a verticuleerder, I can't for the life of me think what it is in english. It doesn't go deep like a harrow, just scratches the surface really to remove the moss.. there is also a blade which can be attatched to a lawn mower, with two pins just to turn the lawn over a bit... Please help I am forgetting my own language...

I don't know- I'll go and ask my mother, who's a keen gardener and let you know later. :D
