Power Raking is done to remove dead grass and excess thatch from the lawn. This is done in the spring prior to new growth. The service involves power raking by machine, hand raking and bagging of clippings, followed by a high cut to collect excess clippings and groom lawn. Bags of clippings are placed in compostable bags and left on site for regular compost pickup.
Lawn surface cleanup only. Does not include cleanup of planting beds, tree wells, fall leaves or general debris.
Frequently Asked Questions
For cool season grasses, power raking is recommended in early spring. Power raking in the warm season grasses is better done in late spring to early summer. Because power raking does damage some healthy grass, it is important to power rake with enough growing season left for your lawn to recover. We recommend at least 30 days of growing season following power raking for the best results.
If you haven’t power raked your lawn before, it’s best to leave this to the professionals, as power raking can do some damage if it’s not done right.
No. We recommend power raking if thatch is more than ½” thick.
Yes, power raking is good for your lawn if there is a lot of buildup and dead matter. Power raking removes waste without damaging healthy grass. Your grass can “breathe” and recover faster from disease, pests, and heat.
A power rake should only be done when thatch has grown more than ½” deep.
No, it depends on how much thatch has grown.
Yes, after power raking is a great time to seed.
