Power-raking is a process for removing excess thatch from your lawn. Thatch is the layer of decomposing debris that naturally accumulates over time, which can be found on the top of the soil below the grass line in your lawn. Contrary to popular belief, leaving grass clippings after mowing does not contribute to the development of thatch. Clippings are mostly water and decompose rapidly, leaving behind beneficial nutrients for the lawn. A certain amount of thatch is normal and is not detrimental to a lawn’s health. Once the thatch becomes more prevalent, it can cause problems. An excess of thatch in your lawn will cause it to shed water, restricting the absorption of water and nutrients into the soil and resulting in an increased chance of fungi, insects, and drought. We recommend power-raking once you reach about ½ to 1 inch of thatch.
