Lawn dethatching is the process of removing the built up thatch from your lawn so that water, sun, fertilizer and seed can better reach the soil to nurture your lawn. Dethatching helps your lawn to grow thick and beautiful. It also helps make it more resistant to traffic wear. Common services that can be completed at the same time as dethatching include fertilization and overseeding.

Cost of Lawn Dethatching

The cost of lawn dethatching is largely based on the amount of labor it takes to complete the work properly. At Best Way Landscaping we use a 3 person crew. One person runs the dethatching machine, one rakes and clears the thatch debris. The final crew member empties debris in the dump, loads seeds for overseeding and supplies the other two crew members support. We have found that this is the most effective and affordable crew for lawn dethatching.

This means our crew rates for lawn dethatching are $175 per hour. To give you an idea of how much you can expect to pay for your lawn dethatching, we have built up three pricing examples below. Please keep in mind that these are only examples, for an exact price on your lawn dethatching give us a call.

Cost of Lawn Seeding or Overseeding

Lawn seeding or overseeding are often coupled with dethatching, since the seeds can easily reach the soil right after dethatching. We take it one step further and slit seed your lawn after dethatching. This embeds the seeds as much as possible to get the best sprout rate. Slit seeding is cost effective to do while dethatching because our combination dethatching/overseeding machine can do both jobs almost simultaneously reducing labor costs.
