Over time, a layer of thatch can form in your lawn, between the soil and the grass blades, that can create detrimental effects on the growth and health of your lawn. This layer, which is comprised of dead grass, roots, and debris, should be removed on an annual basis. Additionally, the grass of your turf has certain times when it needs access to more moisture and nutrients.

It is for these reasons that we offer both aeration and dethatching services for homeowners in Bowling Green, Plum Springs, and other surrounding areas like Smiths Grove, KY. Since this area of Kentucky boasts mainly cool season grasses, our aerating and dethatching services are offered annually during the autumn months, when it is the optimal growing season for your lawn.


What is dethatching?

Dethatching on an annual basis will prevent your lawn from growing too much thatch. Over half an inch of thatch will become detrimental to your lawn. Dethatching involves using a special rake or machine that uses knifelike blades to vertically slice into the turf and break up the thatch. We offer dethatching services for residential properties both large and small around the Warren County area.


The Problems Thatch Creates for Your Turf

Example of an area of a lawn that has been dethatched versus a portion that has not been dethatched yet.

The layer of thatch that builds up on your lawn can form a barrier. This barrier, or mat, is usually thick and creates a number of problems for the roots of your grass growing below it. Thatch will:

  • Create a breeding ground for mosquitoes and harmful pests to your lawn
  • Block water, sunlight, and nutrients from getting to the soil and roots
  • Hinder healthy growth of your lawn

Hiring a professional to provide dethatching for your property will help keep your lawn at its healthiest during the peak growing season.


Allowing nutrients, sunlight, and water to reach your turf's roots with core aeration.

Core aeration is a technique that uses a specialized handheld tool or machine, to punch holes into your lawn. Aerating is a process that allows nutrients, sunlight, and water to reach deep down into the soil and roots of your turf and help it grow healthier. The plugs that are removed from the process can be collected or left on the turf to break down naturally.

Core aeration benefits include having a lawn that is better able to absorb and use nutrients from water and sunlight to create a thicker and greener lawn.

Leaving plugs on the lawn to decompose and break down naturally allows additional nutrients to seep into the ground.
