What is Dethatching?

What is Dethatching?

“Dethatching” lawns refers to the mechanical removal from a lawn of the layer of dead turfgrass tissue known as “thatch.” This residue is bad for your grass, as it keeps water and nutrients from seeping down to grass roots.

Easy Dethatching tip:

Pushing rake tines deeply down into the grass when you are raking leaves in the fall is an easy step you can take towards dethatching lawns for minor cases of thatch build up.

In worse cases, core aeration may be necessary for dethatching lawns properly. If you have badly compacted soil, that’s another reason to aerate your lawn.

You have three options when it comes to core aeration:

Hire a lawn service to do the job
Rent a core aerator
Buy an aerator

The best two options are either to hire a lawn service or to rent a core aerator. When it comes to buying, not only is cost an issue, but storage is an issue as well.

And how would you pick between the other two options? Well, if you’re not physically up to the job, don’t live near a rental center or just plain don’t like gadgets very much, it might make sense for you to choose to hire a lawn service like Dreamlawns to conduct this work.

Alternate Spellings: de-thatching
