Remove excess thatch buildup from your lawn and soil with our dethatching and power raking services.
By dethatching, or power raking, your lawn on an annual basis, you are able to remove thatch buildup that accumulates during the year. This buildup is harmful to your lawn for a few reasons.
We offer dethatching and power raking services to homes in Swansea, Rehoboth, Berkley, Berkley, Somerset, Seekonk, and nearby cities in Massachusetts.
Thatch is a layer of dead grass blades, stems, and roots that forms on your lawn throughout the growing season. This layer ends up between your live grass and the soil when it is not removed properly. A tiny bit of thatch can be beneficial to your lawn because it is organic matter that breaks down and provides nutrients to the soil, but too much of it ends up blocking the soil.
If you allow a thick layer of thatch to sit on your lawn, over time, the grass will begin to grow in the thatch instead of the soil. This results in a very weak root structure and weak grass that is highly susceptible to lawn disease, insect infestation, and weed growth. Nutrients such as light and water will not be able to pass through to the roots or soil.
