What Are the Benefits of Lawn Dethatching?

If you water and fertilize your grass religiously, but your ungrateful lawn refuses to turn green, overgrown thatch may be the culprit. Regular dethatching will help return and maintain your lawn's health.

Definition

  • Thatch is the layer of rhizomes, crowns and stems left behind from dead grass. In established lawns, this layer can look like a tangled mat atop the soil.

When to Dethatch

  • Use a trowel to dig out a divot from your lawn. If the thatch depth is greater than half an inch, then it's time to power rake.

Water

  • One benefit of dethatching is that water is allowed to soak down into the soil, where it can reach the grass roots. Thick thatch buildup traps moisture and prevents it from reaching the soil.

Air

  • Dethatching also benefits the lawn by allowing for proper air circulation. When thatch inhibits air circulation, disease and pests have the perfect conditions for growth.

Fertilizer

  • Getting rid of excess thatch also makes fertilization worth your effort. Without the fibrous tangle of old growth in the way, fertilizer can reach the roots to feed growing grass. In addition, grass clippings left on the lawn can break down properly, giving the turf an extra boost of nitrogen.

Aeration

What Is Aeration?

Technically speaking, aeration is the naturally occurring process of air exchange between the soil and its surrounding atmosphere. Practically speaking, aeration is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve natural soil aeration. It’s commonly called “core aeration” in the lawn service industry, and you may have heard of it as soil cultivation (coring, spiking and slicing). Most homeowners simply call it aeration.

Aeration Benefits:

Core aeration can help make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements through these means:

Bullet Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.
Bullet Enhanced soil water uptake.
Bullet Improved fertilizer uptake and use.
Bullet Reduced water runoff and puddling.
Bullet Stronger turfgrass roots.
Bullet Reduced soil compaction.
Bullet Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.
Bullet Improved resiliency and cushioning.
Bullet Enhanced thatch breakdown.

How Often Should You Aerate A Lawn?

Most lawns benefit from annual aeration. Heavily used lawns, or those growing on heavy clay or subsoils may need more than one aeration each year. Again, turf responds best when tine spacing is closer and penetration is deeper.

When Is The Best Time To Aerate Lawns?

If you have cool season turfgrass such as Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass, both spring and fall are ideal times to aerate. In spring, aerate between March and May. Perform fall aeration between August and November. Aeration before or at the time of late season fertilization enhances root growth and improves spring green-up and growth. Warm season turfgrasses such as zoysia grass and Bermuda grass should be aerated in mid-spring to summer. Avoid aerating when warm season grasses are dormant – it may encourage weed competition. In addition, avoid aerating warm season grasses during spring greenup, and not until after their first spring mowing.
