Learn About Our Dethatching Services

Thatch is the layer of dead grass, roots, and debris that accumulates between the soil surface and the green grass blades above. Almost every lawn needs a dethatching once a year. A thin layer of thatch (less than ½ inch) can be beneficial for a yard, helping insulate it from extreme temperatures and reducing weed germination by preventing weed seeds from reaching the soil. However, once the thatch gets out of control (more than ½ inch), it will form a barrier and keep moisture and air from providing nutrients to the soil. Thatch buildup is not nearly as big a part of lawn care as is mowing, but you should not overlook its importance to the long-term health of your grass.

The Benefits of Dethatching:

  • Promotes Air Circulation: Roots can breathe easier when there is more airflow to the soil, which is why thatch is beneficial. Improved air circulation, made possible by dethatching, leads to stronger roots and healthier grass.
  • Enhances in Nutrient Absorption: Too much thatch in the soil creates a barrier that stops essential nutrients from getting to the roots. Your lawn’s growth and color will be enhanced by eliminating thatch so that nutrients may be readily absorbed.
  • Prevents Pest and Disease Problems: Fungi, insects, and other pests find a perfect home under thick thatch layers. You may lessen the likelihood of pest infestations and illnesses harming your grass by dethatching, which helps remove their breeding grounds.
  • Improves Water Infiltration: The thatch accumulation may prevent water from penetrating the soil, improving water infiltration and reducing surface runoff and water waste. Reduced watering frequency is one benefit of dethatching, which improves water infiltration to the root zone.
