This past Saturday was just a dethatching day. The three smaller yards I dethatched and bagged. The two bigger yards, I dethatched and then went over twice to cut. Bagging is more effective, but on bigger properties I tend to just cut up the thatch. It saves me the time and effort bagging and disposing on big properties. Both leave very manicured lawns. Do you bag your thatch or just cut it?.. or both?
