I plan to thatch this year in the fall. I bought a thatcher a bit late this spring and have only gotten to use it once. I need to make the money back this fall. What differences is there for that time of year.<p>In the spring you can thatch, seed and fert, and then water. Easy money. I would not think that it would be that easy in the fall. Is there a diff to get the lawn full again before winter sets in? WIll it be the same as in the spring with everything filling in nicely? thanks for your help all.
