Scraping is a technique for working the soil used in agriculture, gardening and ecological management of natural environments.
This operation consists of scraping the soil to reopen the vegetation, break down the hard surface layer and renew the substrate. Water is then better able to penetrate the loose soil and it is easier for seeds to germinate.
In ecological management, this technique supports the development of seed stocks contained in the soil and the development of pioneer species.
