    Curious how you determined if a verticut would be necessary/beneficial or not without being on site?

    Also, this may be a regional thing, but I consider a power rake and a verticut/dethatch two different things.

    Good, as your post led me to believe it was a phone conversation.

    They are two different things, done by two different types of machines. However you can "Power Rake" turf using a machine designed to Vert-I-Cut Turf... But you cannot Vert-I-Cut with a Power Rake. Due to the type of blades used.
