    Lawn De-thatching

    Overtime, a layer of dead grass roots, stems and debris builds up on the top layer of the lawn soil.

    This layer of thatch, provides a hiding place for insects. And it prevents water and nutrients from getting below the soil surface.

     Thatch covers the soil surface so grass can not dense up, spread and propagate freely. And it prevents seeds from making good contact with the soil, resulting in poor seed germination.  

    The grass growth is uneven and the lawn looks sparse, acquiring an unhealthy appearance. 

    Lawn De-thatching should be performed when needed, based on your particular grass growth behaviour, generally once every 2  years.

    Our Lawn De-thatching service scarifies and rakes up the top layer of your lawn soil, exposing the soil surface previously covered by roots and debris.

    De-thatching will create room for water and nutrients to get under the soil surface. And it will create soil surface room for new grass to grow, spread and dense up, resulting in a healthier, denser looking lawn.

    When de-thatching, a significant amount of thatch will be raked up from the lawn.

    The Lawn De-thatching service includes de-thatching the lawn, and then extensive raking to pick up and bag all the debris coming out. 

    Customer must provide paper bags, we will leave the bags by your curb ready for municipal pick up.
