Fight insect damage and disease while enriching your lawn using a grass dethatcher
Thatch is an accumulation of roots, crowns and grass clippings that create a dense mat of vegetation at the root level of your lawn. When thatch build up becomes greater than ½”, it creates a barrier and prevents vital nutrients, water and air from penetrating the soil. This inhibits your lawn’s ability to fight off disease and dehydration. A dethatcher removes this unwanted thatch from your lawn. The best time to use a lawn dethatcher is in the early spring or late fall since this timeline gives your lawn a chance to recover. When using a dethatcher, be sure the reel isn’t set too low; this can damage your lawn. Additional benefits of using a dethatcher is your turf will become far more resistant to insect damage and disease and you’ll have a vibrant lawn because the denser growth will promote a deeper color.
