Thatch is a layer of dead grass, roots and other small lawn debris between the top growth of your grass and the roots. Thatch acts like a barrier shield to a healthy lawn, keeping moisture, air and nutrients from entering your lawn’s root system. Removing this layer, or dethatching, helps your lawn’s root system prosper.
If you plan to seed, dethatching is an important step that should not be overlooked before spreading. Seed will often take root in thatch rather than the soil, and will die out quickly due to insufficient access to nutrients and water.
Brinly lawn dethatchers use independently flexing tines to gently comb dead grass and roots to the surface where they can be swept up. Dethatch your way to a healthy, green lawn with one of our tow behind dethatchers.
