To understand why you might need to De-thatch your lawn its first important to know what Thatch is. Thatch is the mat of dead grass and other organic materials between the green tips of your grass and the soil surface – is harmful to your lawn when it reaches a thickness of one half inch of more. Drought, disease, insects, failure to remove lawn clippings, and other factors can cause this build-up. Leaving this thatch barrier will impair new growth by blocking fertilizer, water, and other nutrients to the root system. For a healthy lawn, you must remove thatch before seeding. Hand raking is simply not vigorous enough to remove all the thatch in your lawn. A power de-thatcher with revolving blades of knives is the best equipment. National Turf Service offers the best available equipment for quick, thorough removal of thatch.
