Power Raking 

Over time, dead grass debris and other organic matter can form a layer of thatch on your lawn, especially over winter. Thatch can prevent your lawn from growing healthily by preventing new grass blades from penetrating the soil and blocking water, nutrients, and sunlight. Our power raking service helps to remove this layer of thatch without damaging your lawn or soil, increasing soil quality and allowing water and fertilizers to penetrate the soil more easily. Power raking also allows new grass to grow more effectively, meaning it’s a great option when you want to re-seed or overseed your lawn to promote a thicker, greener, healthier lawn. The benefits of power raking are numerous and will help your lawn to grow at an optimal rate. Properly removing dead grass will prevent disease or insect infestation from occurring within your yard as well!

Why you should power rake your lawn: 

  • Removes thatch and debris. Thatch is a layer of dead grass and roots that builds up on your lawn, eventually preventing water, air and nutrients from reaching the soil. Thatch also encourages fungus and insect problems. Power raking helps to reduce these issues by removing this layer of dead material so that your lawn can get its nutrients back into the soil.
  • Prepares the lawn for overseeding. As you know, lawns are susceptible to wear and tear. Lawns with thin spots can be repaired by overseeding.  The new grass will grow through this layer as it takes hold in your soil.
  • It is the most efficient way to prepare your lawn for spring and summer treatments. By raking away dead plant material, we are able to ensure that fertilizer is applied where it’s needed, not just on top of a thick layer of mulch. The same goes with overseeding; by removing debris, seeds can be sown directly into the soil where they will have a much better chance of taking root.
  • Stimulates the lawn’s root system, which helps to break up soil compaction. This loosens the soil and improves aeration, which in turn improves drainage. It also improves the water and nutrient supply to the roots of your grass.
  • It is a critical aspect of lawn care, as it makes your lawn look its best and helps to prevent weeds from growing. When you power rake your yard before spring, you’re actually creating an ideal environment for the grass seed to grow in by removing dead leaves and debris that would otherwise block out sunlight. Getting this done early in the season will make all the difference when it comes to preventing weeds from taking over later on.


In addition to these advantages, power raking is an excellent option for people who don’t want to spend hours and hours on their hands and knees using a manual hand rake or add an attachment on their mower.
