The secret to a beautiful yard in the summer
is proper maintenance year round.

Verticut Services

What is verticut?  Verticut is the method of removing thatch from your yard. 

Why is important to verticut?  Verticut is a spa for your lawn.   Removing all the thatch and exposing soil to roots and sunlight.  Also ensures that grass seed  has a better contact with soil and helps prevent pest from taking over.   

What is thatch?   Thatch is that layer of build up between your soil and grass blades.   Thatch is made up of roots, rhizomes, stems and other plant materials that decay slowly.  

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.
