Thatch, which is a dense layer of dead/living parts of grass, is NOT caused by grass clippings mulched on the lawn. Build-up of thatch is a chronic problem with turf and associated with conditions allowing the soil microbes can decompose it.
Once thatch begins to accumulate, it can form a nearly impenetrable barrier with seriously reduced air and water flow from the surface to the roots. The easiest and the fastest way to deal with the thatch is power-raking. Power-rake DOES initially cause some damage to the turf; thus, the best timing for power rake is early spring or fall because grass can recover before summer or winter.
Power rake machine has to be adjusted on a case-by-case basis to attain the best result. Green Minded Lawn Care will definitely help you to deal with the thatch layer at reasonable rates starting $219.
Our service includes all the processes such as planning, power-raking and removing and dumping removed thatch.
Important NOTE: Power-rake should not be performed on regular basis. If you are not sure if the thatch is causing problems in your lawn, please contact us for a FREE on-site consultation.
