Lawn dethatching is the process of removing the layer of dead grass blades sitting under your grass known as thatch. Thatch is the layer of living and dead stems, roots, stolons, and rhizomes between the green blades of grass and the soil surface. Heavy nitrogen fertilizer applications (too much fertilizer), frequently overwatering, fungal disease, and summer damage due to extremely hot temperatures contribute to excessive thatch levels.
- Dethatching promotes healthy lawns
- Power raking helps the grass to tolerate drought stress better
- Lawn dethatching reduces fungal growth, insects, and pests
- Dethatching improves water flow to the root system.

A professional commercial lawn dethatcher will be used to dethatch your lawn. We will collect and dispose of all thatch debris resulting from dethatching. Walkways and entry ways will be blown free of debris.
For better results please mow your lawn at 2 inches height and collect the grass clippings. Performing aeration, overseeding, and fertilizer after dethatching will help your lawn to be healthier, greener and denser. We offer all these services and they can be performed all in one day to maximize results.
