I will start out that I have searched and read quite abit of information.And that I am new to buisness so please be Patient. I have a few questions. With Bermuda lawns that are less than 1 1/2 years old is it possible too have a thatch problem? I have signed a few accounts in a new neighborhood and a competitor is going around and selling dethatching services and my customers are questioning me when I tell them that it does not need it. These are lawns that have had one summers growth on them.If you physically look at them there not dense enough too even hide the soil completly.Most are in poor shape with alot of weeds showing since the grass is still dormant. I have tried to explain this too the customers with mixed results. Dethatching and raking with a tine rake such as the jrco are 2 different processes right? I understand that a core sample is the only way too determine wether detaching is needed but why do people tine rake Bermuda? Also when is the approprate time too dethatch Bermuda.Is it ok too do it when it is dormant? I think I know the answerrs too these just need some positive reinforcment. I wish I could find some printed documents to help educate my customers on sound LawnCare and dispell some myths.
