Power Raking Services

Get your lawn looking and performing at its best!

What is Power Raking?

Power Raking is the process of removing dead grass and excess thatch from the lawn. Removal of this excess thatch layer helps with nutrient intake. We recommend Power Raking is  performed early spring before the grass "greens up". If the grass fully greens up, it can actually be harmful to power rake late in the spring as it will damage root systems. We recommend removing thatch once a year in the spring prior to new growth to promote a thicker and healthier lawn. We do not remove the entire thatch layer as its beneficial to have light layer (less then 3/4 of an inch). 

Why Power Rake?

​​

  • Removes excess thatch layer to improve nutrient intake.

Frequently Asked Questions About Core Aeration 

Q: Do you take away all the dead grass and thatch pulled up by the power rake?

A: Yes we will bag and take away all excess debris pulled up by the power rake and its included in the cost. We ask to use your compost bin if possible. The first filled bag is free and every other bag after that is $3.00

Q: Am I able to get my lawn core Power Raked if I have underground sprinklers?

A: We ask that the sprinkler locations are marked before we pass over with our machines. We can provide flags if needed.

Q: How do I know if my grass needs to be power raked? 

A: Grass is protected by a layer of something called thatch. This thatch lay is actually healthy in ranges under 3/4 of an inch. If your thatch layer exceeds this, it will inhibit your roots from intaking nutrients and choke your lawn.
