Dangers of a Power Rake
Over my 30 year career, I have witnessed the rise of lawn diseases, shallow roots and weeds that love areas tilled up by a power rake. The need for increase in water during the summer is proportional to the increase of poweraking in the spring. The chances that you will have a Grub infestation, crabgrass or lawn disease is about 90%. Of course, Green Turf Lawnscapes customers receive the proper quality, quantity and quantification to make their neighbors Green with Envy.
A Power rake only has my blessing in late November ,every 10 years or in the event the lawn needs to be totally renovated and reseeded. For a happy and healthy lawn, get the lawn mowed extremely short and aerate it in the spring. You will have less weeds, bugs and crud to deal with this summer and more money in your pocket due to a smaller water bill.
Until Next time,
