Lawn Dethatchers, Lawn Spreaders & Other Home & Garden Supplies Available at Power Equipment Warehouse Did you know earthworms keep thatch build-up down? We don't sell earthworms, but we can certainly provide a lawn dethatcher! A lawn rake and some elbow grease will do a great job of dethatching yards smaller than 2500 SF, with less than ½" of thatch. Larger yards with more than ½" of thatch, require a power lawn dethatcher. A lawn dethatcher looks similar to a power lawnmower, but instead of one horizontal blade, a lawn dethatcher has numerous vertically aligned blades that cut into the soil surface. Blade depth and spacing is dependent on the type of grass you have. Typically, warm season grasses require spacing of 1-2 inches. Delicate, thinner grasses require 3 inch spacing. Blade depth is usually ½". For better lawn coverage use a lawn dethatcher in crossing patterns. After using a lawn dethatcher you will need to remove the thatch with a rake. Most homeowners will rent a lawn dethatcher or hire a professional lawn service to dethatch their yard. Be sure to ask the rental store to calibrate the lawn dethatcher based on the type of grass in your area. Lawn Care Professionals - Now is the time to add a lawn dethatcher and lawn spreader to your equipment fleet! We offer JRCO, Classen, Ryan and Bluebird dethatchers! The best time to fertilize or over seed your lawn is after dethatching and debris clean up. To do so, a quality lawn spreader is essential. If you decide to reseed, rake the suspended seeds into the exposed soil and add fertilizer with a lawn spreader. Next, apply a light layer of matter and/or sand. When using a lawn spreader, be sure to calibrate the lawn spreader so it applies the fertilizer or seed correctly. Never fill your lawn spreader while it is parked on the grass. Doing so will cause the grass to burn if too much fertilizer is accidentally discharged while loading. Instead, fill your lawn spreader elsewhere and wheel it onto your lawn.
