    Hello. Even though its far away, I am looking ahead to next spring. Usually when I do my spring clean ups I dethatch and then rake up all the thatch. However, being the fact I will have around 7 accounts to do thatch in only about a week, I was wondering if blowing the thatch would be easier? The only thing that came to my mind that would be a problem is that raking gets everything even if its still under the grass, but thorougly blowing would do this too. Does anyone blow after dethatching or think this is a decent idea?

    If by blowing it, you mean in the woods or just despersing it? Either way it's gonna be a pain. Any way to bag it? (Do you have a bagger?) Worse came to worse youcould always wind row it with a mower.
