Grass Dethatching Is an Investment in Your Property
As we’ve explored previously, there are many benefits to investing in dethatching for your lawn. It allows moisture and nutrients to more easily penetrate the roots of your grass, allowing your property to grow thick, lush, and healthy. There is also a visual element to it – healthy grass looks good. It helps to eliminate brown spots and patchiness to boot!
If you are hoping to sell your home or business property in the near future, dethatching is something to consider. Buyers these days are seeking properties that have a healthy natural landscape, and beautiful grass is a significant factor.
Bear in mind that it will take up to eight weeks to reap the benefits of your dethatching process, so be sure to invest today for excellent results in the coming months.

The Science Behind Yard Dethatching
What causes excess thatch to build up and block sunlight and nutrients from reaching the roots? We’re glad you asked. There are several reasons your lawn could be suffocating under the weight of its own clippings, including:
- Too much water
- Frequent lawn mowing with no waste clipping collection
- Yard dethatching has never been completed on your property
While a little bit of thatch is a good thing, a thick layer prevents grass from rooting correctly and accessing the nutrients it needs to remain healthy. Thick thatch also blocks the critical rays of sunlight your lawn needs to survive.
The solution to this problem is easy but is quite labor-intensive. If you take on this job manually, be prepared to spend several hours raking, depending on the size of your space. Power rakes and vertical mowers allow us to move through your greenspace with speed, keeping costs low on your behalf.
If you’ve noticed your once glorious lawn is starting to look a little spotty and sparse, it might be time to call in the professionals. You’ll love our affordable rates and exceptional level of customer service.
How to Tell When Your Lawn Needs Dethatching
Performing a simple test will allow us to get the best idea of the health of any green space. To do this, we take a small sample of the lawn, right down to the soil level. Inspection of this sample tells us how thick your thatch layer has become and whether your lawn needs dethatching or not.
In some cases, more than one test will be performed, depending on the size of the landscape area we are working with. Consider phoning our team for more information on how we protect your grass, its root systems, and the soil it needs to thrive.

- Dethatch during peak growth period so it can better recover from the process.
- Choose the right tools for the job. Large spaces will require the use of specialized equipment.
