A power rake takes the thatch out of your lawn, but it does more than just dethatching. The machine uses mechanical flails to dig thatch out of your lawn, picking up 2½ - 4 times more thatch than dethatching. Power raking is more effective and used for lawns with a serious thatch problem.
Thatch is the layer of leaves and dead grass between the soil and grass. Although a little amount of thatch is healthy for your lawn as it protects the soil against weather conditions and use, too much thatch is a problem. When too thick, it can prevent water, air and fertilisers to reach the roots, and block sun and moisture.
