De-thatching of a lawn is the mechanical removal from a lawn of a thatch layer that is too thick.
Thatch is a mixture of dead & living grass, stems, & roots that form a layer on the top portion of your lawns root system.
Thatch layers of 1/2 inch or more become barriers instead of benefits. Thick thatch blocks water & fertilizer, & grass roots get trapped in thatch, where they're vulnerable to heat, drought & stress. Water from irrigation can accumulate in the thatch layer, too, so grass roots suffocate from lack of air. Thick thatch also provides a breeding ground for lawn disease & insect pests.
Freeman's recommends this service for a healthy turf. This services is not always needed unless your turf has a large amount of thatch build up. A simple lawn evaluation from Freeman's can be conducted by us to see if this service may be necessary.
