LAWN THATCHER, 20"
4 Hour: $55.00
A thatcher, often referred to as a de-thatcher, removes unwanted thatch. Thatch is a loose, intermingled layer of dead and living clippings, shoots, stems, and roots that develops between the grass top and the soil surface. Thatch is the result of material building up faster than it can be broken down.
When thatch build-up exceeds 1/2 inch, it can prevent the exchange of water and vital nutrients from the atmosphere to the soil, decreasing the turf's ability to thrive and fight disease and dehydration.
A healthy lawn requires adequate water, an exchange of oxygen and nutrients and a level of microbial activity in its soil. A thatch layer acts as an insulator, keeping soil temperatures low and helping retain moisture which can result in mold or mildew.
Dethatching, also known as combing or power raking, is a process that removes unwanted thatch. It's recommended to dethatch in early spring or late fall to allow the lawn a better chance of recovery after combing. To prevent damage to your lawn, it's important to insure that the blades of your thatcher are only touching the top of soil
