Topping the spring lawn checklist is the much-needed service of Power Raking. Power raking (not to be confused with Aeration) is a highly effective way of removing the accumulated dead grass and debris that is woven between the live grass.
Power raking is an effective and gentle way to remove unwanted build-up and thatch (the layer of dead and decaying matter between the soil and your lawn’s surface) while stimulating healthy growth in the spring or fall.
This process will help your lawn have a more vibrant green color come summer. By removing the dead grass and debris, it will not be there to cloud the color of your lawn. After power raking your lawn, water and fertilizer will be more effective and can pass through the ground surface with ease.
What are the benefits of power raking?
Power raking has numerous benefits, including:
Gently and effectively removing thatch
Improving the flow of air, water, and nutrients to the soil
Stimulating healthy plant growth to give you a lush, green lawn.
