Dethatching, or power raking, pulls up the unwanted organic matter on the surface called thatch. After the process, the lawn will appear quite rugged but make no mistake; this is an essential step towards your beautiful turf in the long run.
Topdressing is a fine blend of sandy loam, compost, and aged bark fines. Top dressing benefits the turf as it builds up the quality of soil and helps even out lumpy areas.
Aeration can be an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn because it allows air and water to penetrate built up grass or lawn thatch. This will help alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles, which prevent the circulation, water and nutrients needed for healthy turf.
