Power Raking / Dethatching
• Core-Aeration

Aeration & Power Raking

What is Core-Aeration?
Core-Aeration involves the removal of small soil plugs or cores out of the lawn. Aeration is done mechanically with a machine having hollow tines or spoons mounted on a disk or drum. Known as a core aerator, it extracts 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter cores of soil and deposits them on your lawn. Aeration holes are typically 1-6 inches deep and 2-6 inches apart.

Advantages of Core-Aeration:
• Increases the activity of soil microorganisms that decompose thatch.
• Increases water, nutrient and oxygen movement into the soil.
• Improves rooting.
• Enhances infiltration of rainfall or irrigation.
• Helps prevent fertilizer and pesticide run-off from overly compacted areas.

What is Power Raking?
Power raking is the process of cutting swathes into the dead material of lawns to remove dead grass so the soil can breathe and the grass can grow more efficiently. Power raking differs from dethatching in extent. While dethatching tears deeply into the soil, removing both dead layers and healthy root systems, power raking is a gentle process design to tear out only the grass material at the surface of the soil.

Advantages of Power Raking:
Power raking is seen as an easier and more efficient option than dethatching. Because the blades only cut the surface of the grass, it aerates the lawn and helps get rid of dead matter without destroying the healthy grass. Dethatching is a much more extensive process that can tear apart growing grasses and needs to be followed by careful care of the lawn. Power raking targets only the dead grass layer and when done effectively, removes waste without causing damage so that the lawn can heal quickly and no permanent damage is done.
