Free your lawn from the grip of dead grass with scheduled dethatching services.
Thatch is a classic case of “too much of a good thing.” In fact, up to a ½” of thatch is useful for keeping your soil cool and moist. After that, however, it can prevent water and nutrients from moving down into the soil—in effect, strangling your lawn and making it more susceptible to disease and insect damage. Add stress from drought, mowing wear and tear, plus fertilizer and weed control, and things start to get scary.
Dethatching Services From Just $75
During spring clean-up, a regular raking will usually do the job. But lawns with a thatch issue may need heavy-duty attention. In these cases, we use a dethatching vertical mowing machine—the best technology for the task. It is a gas machine with a row of moving blades that cuts grooves into the thatch, making it easier to pull up.
We highly recommend adding dethatching for “thatch” yards prior to performing seeding.

A Word From the Guru of Green
If your lawn requires a complete renovation, rather than ripping up “oldies but goodies” roots and starting from scratch with new sod we often recommend a seeding process. For a lawn that really sings, dethatch prior to core aeration and overseed.
