How does a verticutter work? The blades from a verticutter slice into the thatch and raise it to the surface for bagging and removal.
When and how often do you verticut? Verticutting takes place during the growing season. Typically, once a year in late spring or early summer. However, if you have a thatch build up a fall verticut can be beneficial.
