Should You Power Rake Your Lawn?

Cooler weather means your lawn may be ready to be power raked.

As you finish raking your leaves this fall, you’ll be left with a lawn that will soon be dormant and ready to withstand the worst that winter has for it. Instead of using a garden rake or leaf blower for your final raking of the season, a power rake can remove dead grass while leaving the healthy grass alone.

Task Timing

A power rake is a machine that is similar to your lawn mower, but comes equipped with vertical fixed tines to cut the soil and prepare your lawn for reseeding. If you live in a more northernly section of the country, the time to tackle this project has already passed. However, if you live in the deep south, you can power rake your lawn now or wait until spring, before your lawn rebounds.

You can rent a power rake from a home gardening center, a device that is sometimes called a dethatcher. To power rake, you can set the settings on high; to dethatch, you put the settings on low. Dethatching is much more extensive and will remove good grass, turn the soil and requires that you fertilize, seed and water the lawn to get it to take hold.

Power Raking

Power raking enables you to aerate the lawn, getting rid of dead material without killing the healthy grass. Only the dead grass layer is targeted when power raking, a process that helps restore your lawn quickly and prepare it for winter.

Soil Analysis

You’ll want to choose a seed that is best for your lawn, considering your soil conditions and the amount of sunlight your lawn gets when the trees are in bloom. Your state extension service can analyze you...
