I'm not sure I/everyone else exactly understands the question.. Do you mean you'd like to use a spring tine de-thatcher instead of a rake????
If that's what you mean, why not try to tell potential customers that this is your method, and it is used to offer the most thorough cleanup in preparation for the growing season.
even if it's faster than your current method, you may get more $$ for a cleanup because of the additional service.
If the customer does not want to pay for de-thatching at that point... reduce rate and skip the raking.
I know that with the size of the props around here, if I had to rake and blow them, customer couldn't afford it!
