When you look outside do you see unhealthy grass, patches of dead grass, bent matted grass?
Removal of accumulated matted dead grass that is suffocating the yard including snow mold, grass clippings and old organic matter will allow the lawn to breath. Dethatching will allow for better absorption of fertilizer and other nutrients into the soil, as well as denser growth that leads to a healthier vibrant lawn. It is recommended to dethatch in the early spring and late fall to allow the lawn a better chance of recovery.

A thatch layer acts as an insulator, keeping soil temperatures low and helping to retain moisture. However, when thatch build-up exceeds 1/2", 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.
