Keeping your commercial property’s landscape neat and attractive is important for your business. But some things can affect the look of your lawn, such as thatch. Thatch can collect over time and turn your once lush green lawn into an eyesore, affecting customer traffic and client occupancy.
You may have wondered what thatch is. Thatch is a tightly mixed layer of accumulated living and dead root grass and other plant matter such as stems, leaves, and crowns. Organic materials may comprise thatch, but a buildup of it can cause issues with your lawn, including brown spots.
Fortunately, there are ways to keep thatch under control, such as proper lawn maintenance and aerating once or twice a year. But if you think your lawn has too much thatch, The Grounds Guys' commercial lawn dethatching service can help!
What Thatch Can do to Your Lawn:
- Can create an environment where diseases can harbour and grow.
- Forms a barrier that deprives the root system of water, air, and nutrients.
- Thatch creates a space for insects to live, thereby promoting insect manifestations.
- Can cause the lawn to brownout and not hold colour well.
Benefits of Commercial Lawn Dethatching Service:
- Lawn dethatching allows water, air, and nutrients to penetrate the soil.
- Keeps grass and soil healthy.
- Encourages new root growth and stimulates grass roots.
- Helps prepare your lawn for reseeding or overseeding.
- Improves drainage.
When to Start the Commercial Lawn Dethatching Process
When the thatch gets over 2-inches in thickness, it’s time to address the issue. Commercial lawn dethatching can stress a lawn, so we recommend dethatching in the Spring or Fall. Dethatching during these seasons allows your lawn to recover faster.
Why Choose Us for Commercial Lawn Dethatching?
Dethatching a lawn correctly requires proper training, experience, and equipment. Our team uses a mechanical commercial lawn dethatcher to remove thatch from your lawn. Running a commercial lawn dethatcher over the lawn is a highly labour-intensive task. Correcting the issue will often require several passes in different directions to bring up enough thatch to thin it out.
Once complete, The Grounds Guys will always leave your landscape looking better than ever. We’re committed to keeping your commercial property looking neat and attractive. Once we complete the job, our team will rake up debris, haul it away, and turn it into compost. This can also be the perfect time to consider top dressing with compost and overseeding the lawn!
Top dressing your lawn with compost is an excellent way to add beneficial organic matter that can help improve the soil.
Overseeding the lawn is a great way to get your lawn looking thick, lush, and green. It’s also a great way to diversify your lawn and prevent insect infestations! The Grounds Guys can overseed your lawn with seeds resistant to insects and diseases.
