Power raking is often used to dethatch lawns after winter. So that raises another question, what is thatch? Thatch is a layer between the soil and grass shoots that is composed of leaves and dead grass. Too much thatch can prevent water and nutrients from getting to the roots.
We recommend Power Raking in early Spring, The service is especially effective combined with Overseeding, as it opens the lawn surface so that new seed can get better established. It's also a great way to thicken up lawns, since Power Raking slices the surface stolons and stimulates new growth, thickening the lawn.
- My lawn service does not collect the clippings, Is this my cause for my thatch problem?
- Side Note: while leaving clippings on the lawn is recommended, there are some exceptions to the rule:
- How do i know if my lawn needs dethatching?
- What will my lawn look like after a dethatching is completed?
