    I de-thatch my lawn every spring!
    I offer to my customers, and tell them the benifits, but not alot do it. Great extra money for me on the ones that do have me d-thatch.

    i do thatch raking with all spring clean ups. there is a differance in dethatch and thatch rake thus the range of answers you are not using a powered vertical rake right just a spring thatch rake right.

    We do it as part of the spring cleanup because of matted leaves in the lawn.
