Heavy Duty 18" Lawn Dethatcher for Hire also known as a Lawn Scarifier or Power Rake. Used to de-thatch and aerate lawns which allows the lawn to rejuvenate itself.

Thatch is a layer of dead grass and roots which accumulates at the base of your lawn over a period of time. It is recommended to hire a lawn dethacher once a year typically in Spring or Autumn when grass is growing. Detach in one parallel direction, and then run the dethatcher perpendicular (90d) to your original path before raking up the debris.
