With some trees, the seeds from the tree get embedded into the soil in the lawn’s turf. This stops lawn production and lawn growth and could create weeds. A dethatched lawn application betters the lawn appearance by lifting those seeds from the lawn’s turf and lifting other tree debris along with other plant materials and dead grass that can get trapped in the lawn’s turf. This can be done manually with a rake and shovel or using a mechanical dethatched lawn unit.
In some cases, aerate the lawn first, before dethatching. This causes thatch materials to rise to the lawn’s surface over time, then thatcher materials are easier to remove…doing this along with regular raking up or sweeping up and removal of tree debris.
Sweep when debris is visible on outdoor surfaces during the lawn maintenance season.
Lawn push sweeper units remove un-embedded leaves and debris from the top of lawn and other outdoor surfaces, like cobblestone or concrete driveways, sidewalks, patios, and outdoor pathways.
The lawn push sweeper sweeps and manicures the lawn at the grass level. Sweeper units are not used for collecting rocks, nuts, pinecones, or wet debris, instead on non-grass surfaces use a push boom; on grass areas use a rake.
