Dethatching / Power Raking Service


Lawn dethatching should be performed as needed, based on your particular grass growth behavior, generally once every 2 years. Proper aeration practices also significantly reduces the need for dethatching but it can be considered optimal to give the lawn a light power raking every year to wake up the lawn in the spring (see spring cleanup for that service).

When performing our lawn dethatching service, we scarify and rake up the top layer of your lawn soil, exposing the soil surface previously covered by thatch and debris. This may be especially beneficial before seeding and can be combined with aeration to create optimal seeding conditions by bringing up organic matter for good seed to soil contact.

Dethatching will create room for water and nutrients to get under the soil surface. And it will create soil surface room for new grass to grow, spread and dense up, resulting in a healthier, denser looking lawn.

When dethatching, a significant amount of thatch will be raked up from the lawn. We will pick up and and bag all the debris coming out and leave the bags on your property’s side wall or at the curb for city pickup.

Bump Remediation

We may dethatch aggressively to pulverize bumps on the lawn. In combination with the Aeraseeder seeding service, the technique can greatly mitigate bumps on a lawn.
