Dethatch and Aeration

Dethatching is a effective way to remove that thatch from your yard.
 What is Thatch?
-Thatch is a naturally occurring layer of interconnected dead and living stems, leaves, clippings, roots and debris found between growing grass and the soil under it.
 How does thatch affect my lawn?
- Normal amount of thatch improves turf resiliency when faced with heavy use, drought or high heat because it will hold in extra moisture and shield the soil from the sun. But if it gets thicker than an inch, it impedes the ability of water, fertilizer, air and other nutrients to get to the roots. If thatch dries out, it will decrease the drought resistance of the grass, and if it stays wet, fungi and disease may grow there, which will be hard on grass already declining because of poor access to water and nutrients. A thick layer of thatch makes the lawn more susceptible to pests, unfavorable weather and weeds while also decreasing the effectiveness of regular care and maintenance.

Aerating a lawn is a simple and effective way to improve the health of any lawn.
-Improving drainage & reduce runoff, Controlling thatch development,
-Aeration enhances soil, by opening up compact soil, allowing air, water and fertilizer to reach the turf roots. Making holes in the surface of your lawn, allows deeper root growth and reduces soil compaction. Not only does lawn aerating give you a better looking lawn, but it also thickens the turf and this promotes deeper root growth by allowing the roots to expand on grow deeper into the soil. Clay soil expand when the weather get warm causing the soil to become compacted. Core aeration allows the soil room for expansion
