Facts about Power Raking
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 your lawn. Power raking is the equivalent of a good scrubbing, breaking apart the detritus build up to revitalize your lawn season after season.
How is Power Raking Done?
Green Grass technicians arrive on site with power rakes that would appear to most as a motorized lawnmower. Unlike a lawnmower, a power rake’s blades are vertically oriented, not horizontal. This allows power rake’s to thresh dead grass instead of cutting it. With dead grass pulled up, younger blades have more room and nutrients to grow. Once finished power raking, technicians use rakes to gather up and bag clippings, then mow your lawn and collect those clippings as well, leaving your lawn looking and crisp and fresh.
Clippings are placed in compostable bags & left onsite for regular compost pickup.
