Sorrells Landscape Inc.’s Lawn Dethatching
Maintaining good soil conditions is key to healthy turf. There are many ways to prevent thatch buildup and ensure the roots of your plants get enough water and nutrients. Aeration, power raking and lawn dethatching are just some of the ways to do so. Each have their time and place, depending on the needs of your yard.
Professional landscaping companies like Sorrells Landscape Inc. can help you find the process that’s right for your turf. We begin with an assessment of your soil conditions and go from there. But Sorrells Landscape Inc.’s experts don’t believe in just telling you what’s right without explaining why. Trust is the foundation of customer service, and open communication is the foundation of trust. That’s why we’ve put together some information on these processes.
Lawn aeration is a process by which we remove small cores of grass, thatch, and soil from your yard. This process reduces soil compaction, which occurs due to foot traffic, summer weather and even gravity. Soil compaction prevents air, water and nutrients from reaching the roots of your turf. By removing finger-sized cores from your lawn, the soil can breathe again. The cores can then decompose where they lie, returning some of their nutrients to their soil. You should have a landscaping company aerate your lawn annually.
