    Does dethatching leave a lot of debris? If so do you clean it up? I am still learning a lot, it wont be a service I will offer, unless asked maybe, but its always nice to know.

    yes it leaves a lot of debris behind. you either have to rake it up or run it over with your lawn mower w/ bagger. it leaves behind all of the dead grass it pulls up. you can see in the picture how much it pulled up. look in the back yard, you can see where he did and didnt do.
