Thatch is a layer of dead, decaying roots that build up between the soil and the plant itself. A layer of thatch is wanted in your lawn, typically between ?" and ?". The problem occurs when too much thatch builds up in your lawn. A thick layer of thatch prohibits fertilizer, water and air from reaching the root systems of your lawn.

Custom Lawn Manicuring & Design uses a dethatching machine to remove the excess thatch in your lawn. Many companies will rake your lawn or use a spring rake to dethatch your lawn. Both these methods do not adequately remove thatch from your lawn. A dethatching machine not only removes thatch but will also remove dead materials that accumulate above the thatch layer. Custom Lawn Manicuring & Design recommends dethatching your lawn every year, so if your lawn hasn’t been dethatched in a few years you should think about having it done. Lawn dethatching is of great benefit to your lawn and helps keep it healthy and green throughout the year.
