De Thatching a lawn in Loudonville, New York 12211

Here are some before & after pictures of a lawn that we de-thatched in Loudonville, NY.

Notice all of the dead grass throughout the lawn.

De-thatching is important for the health of your lawn. Especially if you have alot of thatch or other decaying organic matter that has gathered. Once you de-thatch your lawn you will remove the layer that is actually suffocating your grass roots. Any fertilizer, nutrients, or water will now be able to soak directly into the soil.

The Power Raker Machine definitely saves you alot of time when you compare it to how long it would take to manually steel rake an entire lawn!

The lawn is now prepared to have grass seed spread. Make sure to water your grass seeds for at least 1 week each day after the initial spread. Keep an eye where the problem areas are and be persistent.

If you feel a de-thatching is something that your lawn needs feel free to give us a call! We can also spread your grass seed and fertilizer.

Bryk City Landscaping
404 Troy-Schenectady Rd
Latham, NY 12110

Watervliet, NY 12189

Cut out edge and installed cobblestone border.

Some before and during pictures..

When we arrived the edger block around the back patio was not level and sinking into the soil.

To keep the blocks level we used some crush run and stone dust.

It is very important that the blocks are level and square.

The customer wanted to have more edger block around the left side of the house to zig zag around towards the back patio.



Once dug out time for the leveling work.

Some pictures of the lawn before removing the thatch.

During.. you can see how much thatch really came up.

This lawn is going to be able to soak in any water evenly now.
