The customer mows the lawn. The customer waters the lawn. The dethatching happens as you slit seed and in thirty years I have removed dead material from two lawns.

Again. I like the method and it is worthy and worthwhile but to say it's cheaper than slit seeding is just wrong.

Adding topsoil is time consuming, labor intensive and or equipment intensive. Not to mention the cost of the topsoil or compost.

To answer Ricks earlier question. Yes, an acre is 43560 sq ft. Unless you sell work at Tru Green.
