Dethatchers are power rakes designed for fast, easy removal of thatch, promoting healthy growth. Thatch is a dense mat of roots, stems and grass clippings that accumulates on lawns, blocking the flows of vital nutrients. Dethatchers utilize free-swinging, steel flail blades mounted on a horizontal reel (or optional verticut blade reels) to penetrate the lawn surface, breaking up thatch and promoting vigorous growth. They also break up cores produced by core aerators. Dethatching also helps prepare the lawn surface for reseeding. Cutting depth is adjustable to match lawn conditions.

  1. Thatch is a dense mat of roots, stems, and grass clippings that accumulates between the soil and growing blades of grass. As thatch builds, adequate amount of vital turf nutrients including water, oxygen, nitrates, phosphorous, and potassium are unable to reach the root system.
  2. Dethatchers from Get-it-Done Rentals effectively remove thatch build up by “power raking” the lawn turf, utilizing special steel blades mounted on a rotating reel. This allows air and nutrients to reach the root system again.
  3. With Thatch removed, air, water, nutrients, herbicide and pesticides can do their job. Turf becomes healthier and more resistant to insect damage and disease.
  4. Dethatching at regular intervals promotes denser growth and helps to ensure you will have a vibrant lawn.
