Lawn Dethatching Or Power Raking Centreville VA
Another Key Component To Maintaining A Healthy Lawn
Lawn de-thatching is another practice in maintaining a healthy lawn but not many lawn care companies offer it and many property owners don’t even know what it is or why it’s important to the healthy growth and appearance of your lawn.
Over the period of a few months or seasons (especially if you leave your grass clippings on the lawn) your lawn will accumulate a thick layer of un-decomposed grass stems, roots and lawn clippings. These accumulate at the surface of your soil and at the base of your grass. Lawn care professionals usually refer to this layer of organic matter as “thatch”. This decomposing organic matter prevents oxygen and other nutrients from reaching the grass roots, which in turn can create unhealthy looking grass.
It’s important for your soil to have good airflow in order to promote the microbial growth that will help break down all of the organic matter that accumulates in this thatch layer. A regular aerating and de-thatching program completed once or twice per year (we’ll be able to tell you the frequency required based on your lawn health) is an essential part of growing healthy, lush, looking grass that will improve your curb appeal and be more enjoyable for your family.
