Remove Dead Grass Choking out New Growth

Old dead grass covering your lawn prevents new growth. Our lawn thatchers, also known as dethatchers, vertical mowers or verticutters, help promote green and healthy grass year after year by breaking up thatch. Thatch is the layer of dead grass clippings, stems and roots that build up between your lawn’s top layer of soil and new grass growth. Lawn thatchers use blades and rake tines to kick up this layer so it can settle more loosely on your lawn or be collected in a bag and removed.

Over time thatch can become dense, blocking air and sunlight from reaching the grass below and choking out your lawn’s new growth. When thatch becomes too thick, your lawn may start to develop dry spots despite getting a sufficient amount of water. Other signs include a spongy feel when the surface is walked on or seeing more insects in the grass than usual. If you want to be certain about whether your lawn needs to be dethatched, dig up a portion of your grass to inspect the thickness of the brown layer of thatch. If the layer is more than half an inch thick, it’s time to dethatch your yard.
