Dethatching is the process of removing the layer of tightly-bound plant material just beneath the surface. This allows for better soil drainage and for nutrients to reach newly exposed root systems. Read more about why to dethach in our blog post!
You will first need to remove all debris from the year, including any sprinkler heads and other obstacles. Then you will need to mow your lawn to half of the normal height of your typical cutting. The lower cut will allow the Dethatcher to work more effectively.
The best time of the year to dethatch a lawn is just prior to the flush of new growth, which varies by grass type. Depending on the type of grass on your lawn, it is best to dethatch when your grass is growing its best and absorbing as much from the soil. Typically, this means late spring through early summer for warm-season grass and early spring and fall for cool-season grasses. Read more about when to dethatch in our blog post!
You will need to set the tines relevant to the type of grass in your yard and the thickness of the thatch. It is also good to consider the amount of time between the last dethatching. Deeper settings will remove more thatch.
