Lawn Power Raking & De-Thatching
De-thatching, also known as power raking, is an important spring lawn care service that helps remove dead organic matter and improve your lawn’s health. Although a thatch layer up to 0.5 inches can be beneficial, timing is crucial to avoid damaging your lawn. At our company, we use a combination of power raking and hand raking with a special de-thatching rake to ensure that every corner of your lawn is properly cared for. After the service, we collect and dispose of the pulled-out dead grass to keep your lawn looking pristine.
For full benefits the grass should be fairly dry. To protect your sprinkler heads from machine impact they need to be flagged to prevent damage.
The power rake machine is sprayed with a bleach solution after every yard to reduce risk of cross-contamination. This will help reducing the spread of fungi like fairy rings.
