View Full Version : DeThatch Depth

going to be running my bluebird power rake for the first time this weekend for dethatching. What is the optimal depth for dethatching?
When we seed we never go deeper than a 1/4 inch.

You might want to do a test run on your yard before you accidently tear up someone elses yard.

I've never used a power rake, I've always heard to areate because dethatching is too hard on the turf. But, I would guess if you were going to-- then it might depend on how thick the thatch layer is.?
