The power rake picks up “thatch” or dead grass and leaves that have been matted and packed by the winter snow. The thatch (which prevents air, light, and water from reaching the turf’s root zone and prevents new growth) is bagged with the grass handling system and removed from the yard. This also includes clean-up of beds any many people use it to rid their yards of late falling leaves as well as removing sticks and thatch. Our rakes are not as aggressive as a power thatcher, so thin or wet yards are not torn apart during service but they are aggressive enough to remove many bushels of thatch and leaves from the yard. This continues to be one of our popular services and is so effective at beautifying your lawn in the spring that we provide this to most of our weekly mowing customers without their request to ready their yard for the mowing season.
