I'm looking for a walk-behind dethatcher that would have much the same result as if I raked my lawn by hand each spring to remove the winter "dead stuff." Would something like this do the trick - http://www.omygarden.com/index.php?menu=16&itemid=130 I don't own a riding mower, nor do I want to, so drag-behinds are not an option. I'm just looking for a way to eliminate the hard raking of my three-quarter acres each spring. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
