I just got back from thatching a lawn and have a silly question what is the lawn supposed to look like when ur done thatching it? When i got there the grass was nice and green and needed to be cut so i cut and bagged it then i dethatched and when i was done the lawn was brown, it looked like i didnt get any dead grass up. Is this the way it should look? I went over the lawn 3 times with the thatcher and bagger. I think becuase its still early alot of the brown isnt dead its just not green yet? Its my first time dethaching a lawn so im not sure.
