Dethatching and aeration are two of the most overlooked lawn care treatments necessary for a healthy yard. It’s unfortunate that this is the case because they also happen to be two of the most important steps as well.
Dethatching is the process of maintaining control over the thatch in your lawn. The ‘thatch’ is the layer of dead grass, roots, and debris that accumulates between the ground and the living, green grass that’s most visible. Left unattended, the thatch can begin to choke the grass and prevent water and nutrients from soaking in. During this process, we utilize a dethatcher, a specialized machine that cuts and breaks up this layer of thatch allowing it to be raked up and disposed of.
Once this is accomplished, aeration is a key step to ensure the grass roots receive ample oxygen and moisture. Aeration is a process where holes are made in the ground, using an Aerator, a device that pulls up small plugs of dirt. Utilizing this machine place holes strategically, allowing you to oxygenate and hydrate your whole yard without compromising the integrity or beauty of the grass.
All of our equipment is maintained with professional cleaning standards after each job to minimize the spreading of weeds from one house to another.
