What Is Dethatching/Power Raking

Power raking or dethatching is a great way to remove dead debris and crust that builds up on a lawn over winter. This crust is what we call thatch. Having too much thatch can cause many problems for your lawns overall health such as poor drainage, limited root growth, and nutrient deficiencies. Removing this layer of dead organic material will allow for a much healthier and greener lawn. The service is especially effective combined with overseeding, as it opens the lawn surface so that new seed can get better established.

When Should I Dethatch My Lawn?

We recommend power raking in the spring, before new growth has begun. Attempting to dethatch your lawn during the hot summer months can lead to overly stressed lawn that will turn yellow. To book a spring power raking service contact your local professionals at CL Lawn Care.
