What is Lawn Dethatching?

Lawn Dethatching is the process of removing excess thatch from your lawn using specialized tools and equipment. “Thatch” is the layer of plant material that naturally accumulates between the soil and blades of grass on your lawn, consisting of stems, roots, shoots, and other organic debris. When thatch accumulates heavily across your lawn (over an ½ inch thick), it prevents water and airflow from reaching your lawn's roots and limits fertilization uptake.

What is Lawn Aeration?

Soil naturally becomes compacted with time as your grass grows, preventing nutrients from reaching your lawn’s root zone. Lawn aeration is the process of making small holes in the soil using specialized machinery to reduce soil compaction and allow air, nutrients, and moisture into the root zone easier.

Dethatching & Aeration FAQs

What time of the year should I dethatch my lawn?

The best time to dethatch is during your grass's active growing season. For cool-season grasses commonly used in Wisconsin, early spring or early fall is ideal for dethatching. For warm-season grasses, late spring to early summer is ideal.


How often should I aerate my lawn?

Most lawns benefit from annual aeration. However, heavily used lawns or those with dense soil may need aeration twice a year. Clay soils typically require more frequent aeration than sandy soils.


Can I dethatch and aerate my lawn at the same time?

Yes, you can dethatch and aerate your lawn simultaneously. The combination can be highly beneficial, as it improves both surface and subsurface lawn conditions.


What happens if you never dethatch your lawn?

If you never dethatch, excessive thatch buildup can occur. This can lead to poor water penetration, increased pest and disease problems, and reduced nutrient absorption. Over time, this results in a thin, unhealthy lawn.
