Donewell Recommended Spring Clean up Services
Power Raking is one of the most important thing you can do for your lawn. Unfortunately, most companies and homeowners do not do it right and this can actually do more harm than good. Common mistakes including removing too little of the thatch and moss resulting in poor fertilizer penetration, or, the opposite occurs and your lawn is scraped down to the dirt destroying the roots of the good grass and adding the extra unnecessary expense of reseeding. You should never have to reseed your lawn if it is done properly which is why you should trust the experts at Donewell.
Power raking your lawn on a yearly or semi-annual basis is necessary to keep your lawn looking its best throughout the growing season. For almost 10 years, Donewell Property Services has been providing specialized lawn care solutions in Calgary, Edmonton and its surrounding areas including Sherwood Park, St. Albert, and Fort Saskatchewan. We use the latest techniques and equipment for power raking all types of lawns so you can be rest assured that your lawn will be handled to the utmost quality
When is Power Raking Necessary?
When A Lawn Is Yellow Instead Of Green
At times the general underlying layer of grass is so thick that the dead yellow color shows more than the green, growing grass does. Removal of two-thirds of the thatch allows less of the dead yellow to show, along with leaving new space for green grass to more easily fill in.
When Lawn Thatch Is Too Deep
When thatch is one half to an inch or more deep, fertilizer cannot penetrate through to the soil, thus rendering all materials effective. A power rake will remove the unwanted two-thirds of the present thatch, and allow peak growth to be reached.
DEEP CORE AERATION
Power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch, improve the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to get into the root zone of your lawn.
How Often Does My Lawn Need Core Aeration?
Annual or semi-annual aeration is advised for all lawns in AB. Those with a moderate thatch build-up, and any lawn that needs to be "thickened up".
Regular Aeration Can Help Avoid Costly Lawn Renovation
Regular aeration helps thatch break down naturally by mixing the soil cores into the thatch and speeding up decomposition. Performed once or twice per year, aeration significantly reduces thatch and improves turf growth. Thatch that is too heavy can require major lawn renovation.
