Dethatching your Lawn

Landscape Solutions WI | April 10, 2014 | no responses.

Spring is finally here. It is time to start thinking about turning your brown lawn into a lush, green one. Getting your yard ready for warmer days and summer doesn’t have to be difficult. In addition to starting a lawn fertilization program, removing excessive thatch is an easy and effective way to revive your lawn after a long winter. The ideal time to dethatch is in spring.

Thatch is built up layer of tightly woven plant material that lies on top of the soil and underneath the visible grass. Thatch develops naturally as grass grows and sloughs off roots, shoots and leaves. This layer of thatch can prevent water, oxygen and nutrients from reaching the roots. Removing this excessive layer will encourage your lawn to thicken up and can also help prevent diseases.
