I am brand new here and have fallen in love with this site. I have just became a teacher and am looking into doing a small business during the summer months. I have a question on dethatching. I have one of these pull behind cheap rakes, but it does not seem to work that great. Should I have someone come in and do the work? Does it work better than raking? I hate having someone else do the work, but if it is going to do a better job, that is alright. Thanks.
