I was wondering when most of you do lawn dethatching. I do it when I am doing Spring Clean Ups, do you as well?

I do it in the spring too. Sean how do u do the cleanup after. I only use 21;s and dont have a big sucker/vac. Also do you always sell an overseed with a dethatch? And if so , at what rate do you apply the seed? :alien:

First I go over the lawn with the dethatcher. After I finish dethatching i vigoriously rake the thatch off the lawn, followed by a complete blowing of all remaining debris on the lawn with my backpacks. Once these steps are finished I then go over it with the Mower to make it look nice and apply a Starter Fertilizer. I have not yet had any experience with overseeding, something I will be learning this year in Turf Management at my school. Hope this helps.
