Tip Number One to keep your lawn in Great Shape 365 days a year:

Use a Rake to Dethatch Your Lawn

Thatch is another name for dead or dying grass blades and even though having a little bit of it can be good for your lawn, too much of it cause a problem – too much thatch can suffocate your lawn. For warm-season grasses, early spring is the perfect time to rake away this mess that can encourage pests and disease. An intense removal of thatch can be rough on your lawn, so make sure you do it at the beginning of a growth period so your lawn can recover properly. For heavy thatch removal consider a power rake.  This is what our company uses to dethatch a lawn and it is very effective.  But that doesn’t mean you cannot help the process while we are away.  You can use a strong, stiff yard rake to pull this debris out and away from your growing lawn.
