Why de-thatch your lawn?
Thatch is a built up layer of dead and living grass matter such as leaves, roots and stems. This layer sits beneath the grass blades but on top of the soil surface. Depending on the environment and time of year the thatch build up can have detrimental effects on your lawn regardless of how much you fertilise or treat the grass. Traditional mowing is unable to remove thatch and further adds to the problem. Aerators will alleviate the symptoms of thatch giving some access to the soil but for the best results a dethatching machine or power rake is recommended to remove the majority of thatch from the soil surface. This gives a longer lasting effect and improved results for your lawn.
