In order to keep your beautiful lawn looking as beautiful and well-manicured as you possibly can, you need to use a high quality dethatcher on it once in a while. Dethatching is easy and the good news is that it usually only needs to be done once or twice a year. Some people do it once in summer and once during the fall, while others do it also in the spring if a third dethatching is required.

When Do You Need to Use a Dethatcher

How do you know when it is time to use a dethatcher on your lawn? You can tell just by looking at the lawn to see if it needs to be dethatched. Is it hard to see the ground between the blades of grass? This is one sign that you have too much thatch caught between the blades.

Of course, it is important to remember that not all thatch is bad and needs to be removed. Some is good and provides extra protection for the delicate roots. It is only when thatch becomes excessive and unsightly that it can harm the quality of the lawn as well as the appearance, and a dethatcher becomes necessary.

There are online lawn and garden websites that sell top quality dethatchers. Choose one that will be gentle on your lawn, while at the same time cleaning all of the thatch. By taking this extra step to take care of your lawn, it will be much more beautiful and easier to maintain.
