Dethatching & Power Raking Services In Your Area

Lawns are one of the most beautiful aspects of a property, and can provide a comfortable, relaxing place for people to relax. Many homeowners invest a lot of time and money in maintaining a healthy, green lawn, but they often overlook a major step: dethatching.

Dethatching is the process of eliminating the layer of thatch that accumulates in a yard over time. Thatch is dead grass, roots, and debris that builds up between the soil and the blades of grass over time. When left unchecked, it forms a thick mat that prevents air and nutrients from reaching the roots of the grass.

If you notice that your lawn has a buildup of dead grass and debris, it's time to call a professional dethatching service near you. Type in your zip code and we'll connect you with contractors who can get started caring for your grass so it can continue to be healthy and green.

"We've been using 2nd Nature consistently for a year and our lawn has never looked better. I highly recommend them. They're always on time, give us useful advice to keep our yard looking great, and get the job done quickly and correctly. We first hired 2nd Nature in 2019 to put down sod and help us get grass to grow on our lawn. We've tried for years to get grass to grow on our own, but the grass was just dirt by the 4th of July every year. 2nd Nature recommended sod and routine care. They came consistently throughout the summer to care for the yard and landscaping (help us with the plants and weeds as well as the grass) and for the first time since we bought our house in 2007... We had grass all summer and fall last year! In the fall, they seeded again, and as of spring 2020 we now have thick, healthy grass and plants. Our yard looks amazing and we sit outside and enjoy it every chance we get. I recommend 2nd Nature to all of my neighbors who ask what we've done differently to get our yard looking so nice, and they now have more happy customers in our neighborhood. I highly recommend this company! Thanks so much for giving us a yard to enjoy and be proud of 2nd Nature!"

"Garcia Landscaping Inc recently built two retaining walls and provided a slate overlay on our sidewalk. The company exceeded our expectations in every way - we could not be more pleased! The quote for the work was reasonable and the resulting products are of very high workmanship. The Garcia Landscaping team was polite and provided extra care in their work - for example, they dug up and saved a tree that I expected would be cut down. When the work was finished, they left my property immaculate. We would recommend them to anyone and would use their service again."

"Jose and JZL have done two projects for us, one a spring clean up and most recently a completely overhaul of our front landscaping. They work so fast and the quality is top notch. Our front landscaping is beautiful and Jose went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was just right (even doing a few small things here and there that weren t really part of the quote like edging around a front tree and filling a space with an extra perennial or two). Jose worked within our budget and delivered something above our expectations. Emily in the front office is also a pleasure to work with. We will be hiring JZL for all of our landscaping needs. Highly highly recommend"

"Fredy made an aggressive quote to clear a path through overgrown grounds, I was nervous the job would not be completely fulfilled. However, Fredy and crew were on time did a great job fast, more than I expected even, clearing trees that weren't originally discussed. Very satisfied, definitely recommended for lot clearing, will call him for lawn mowing too if I have need."
