    Personally operating in alaska i thatch most lawns every season because of the harsh winters and extrem build up each winter, what i do i go over as if i was mowing and then in the opposite direction( turn 90 degrees) and go over the whole lawn again to make sure i do a thural job, i will not perform this task for less than 100$, but much time is invested in these projects each spring and i land about 150 each spring, nice start up boost
