Your lawn has three layers: the grass, the roots under the soil, and one layer in between called thatch. Thatch is not necessarily bad for your lawn, but when it gets too thick it prevents the roots from getting the nutrients, water and air that they need to thrive.

Dethatching is the process of combing through the thatch, breaking it up enough to allow the roots to get what they need to grow strong and hardy. Once we run our machine over the lawn we will rake up all the thatch and haul it away.
