Dethatch in spring to allow water, fertilizer, and sunlight to reach lower grass blades

Dethatching allows for moisture in your grass

Dethatching Benefits

  • Remove layer of dead grass – or plant material – that includes roots, grass and leaves, which lay on the surface of the soil suffocating your lawn.
  • In the upper Midwest it is important to expose the soil to warmth and sunlight early in the growing season.
  • Dethatching ensures that your fertilizers are able to work effectively, and spread properly accross your lawn and throughout the soil.
  • Dethatching helps circulate air deep down into the roots, providing the necessary carbon-dioxide to stimulate new and deep root growth. Roots are the cornerstone of a healthy full lawn.
  • Removing thatch allows water to properly drain directly into the soil and root systems by reducing run off.

Our Process

Almost every lawn needs dethatching at least once a year, or whenever the thatch reaches a thickness of about 1/2 inch.

Our commercial equipment allows us to perform a very thorough dethatching. Carefully loosening and lifting out all of the dead debris from your lawn. We then completely remove the unwanted material from your yard as part of our service.

Our Dethatching service includes the removal of debris from the dethatching process or it can optionally be left on site when instructed.
