by a mat of dead grass? This dead layer is called “thatch” and it can actually choke your lawn. Some thatch can be beneficial to your lawn, but too much can prevent nutrients and water from getting to the roots of your lawn. Thatch, which lies on the turf like a giant mat of dead twigs, grass, stems and roots, weighs down your turf and makes it difficult for new grass to grow. Benefits of dethatching your lawn are that it will open your lawn up to receive more nutrients, the health of the soil will be improved, and will allow water and air to get to the lawn roots. Our Power raking service will remove thatch from your lawn which will improve the overall appearance.
