Atlas Dethatching

Bring your lawn relief from the compression and suffocation of organic debris.

A healthy and well-kept lawn needs more than just water, sunlight, and fertilizer. To keep your grass lush and green, detaching is often required. Thatch, is a layer of dead grass, roots, rhizomes, and other organic materials that have built up between the soil and grass roots. Described as a “mat” of organic debris, thatch builds up faster than it can decompose, and if the thatch layer gets too thick, it can block vital nutrients, air, and water from reaching your grass and the soil below. Dethatching is a process that removes the thatch layer by breaking it apart and pulling it up from the grass layer. This can be done with special tools that resemble rakes or with power mowers that use vertical knives. While not every lawn requires dethatching, some varieties of grasses are more likely to have thatch than others. A moderate layer of thatch is beneficial and can assist with preserving the moisture of the soil, impede underground pests, moderate soil temperatures, and maintain a consistent soil pH.
