Residential Lawn Dethatching Service

Thatch is one of the biggest threats to a homeowner’s lawn. Thatch is organic matter consisting of intermingled leaves, roots, and living and dead stems. Thatch buildup can cause lawn problems, including moss growth and create a breeding ground for diseases and harmful insects. But there’s a solution: lawn dethatching.

Lawn dethatching involves using a mechanical lawn dethatcher to remove a thick layer of excessive thatch. It’s a highly labor-intensive task that requires several passes in different directions. Performing this maintenance brings up enough thatch to help reduce the risk of lawn issues. But, this is one job that is best left to the professionals.

Fortunately, The Grounds Guys lawn dethatching service can save you from the hassle of renting a lawn dethatcher and the time that goes into dethatching properly. Our trained landscape professionals are ready to help your lawn stay healthy, neat, and attractive!

Harmful Things Thatch Buildup Can Do to Your Lawn

  • Forms a barrier that strips the root system of nutrients, air, and water.
  • Creates a space for insect infestations to thrive.
  • Thatch creates an environment where diseases can grow and harbor insects that can damage your lawn.

Lawn Dethatching Service Benefits

  • Allows air, water, and nutrients to reach the soil and improve grass and soil health.
  • Dethatching costs significantly less than replacing a lawn, disposing of it and reseeding or re-sodding.
  • Stimulates new grass root growth.
  • Allows for better drainage.
  • Can prepare your lawn for overseeding or reseeding.

What Is the Best Season to Dethatch?

Generally, we recommend lawn dethatching during the spring or fall depending on the grass type and region you live in. These are the best seasons to dethatch because it allows the lawn to recover more quickly from the stress of the dethatching process
