Thatch removal is very important for a healthy lawn and mower. It is the best tool that can solve this purpose. In order to remove unwanted thatch from a lawn, the lawn mower is much more efficient and effective than a lawn mower. Using a lawn mower can also save a lot of time and can significantly improve the appearance and health of your lawn. A lawn mower generally has a set of four blades, rotating vertically and striking the ground perpendicularly. For this, a lawn mower can remove compacted roots and stems from the topsoil very efficiently. Also moss and weeds, which are bad for the health of the soil, can be removed very effectively.
Step 1 – Determine the need for fraying
A lawn mower is a very powerful machine. Therefore, it should not be used unnecessarily and when it is not needed. You can do a little test on your own to find out if straw is needed or not. Take a small patch of grass and soil from the lawn. Then measure the layer of straw between them. If this layer is more than half an inch, then straw is needed.
Step 2 – When to use it?
You must use the dethatcher at the right time. If the soil is too dry or too wet, a lawn mower should not be used. A lawnmower also damages grass and other useful vegetation on your lawn. Therefore, the disassembly must be carried out in such a time that the grass and other vegetation obtain about two or three weeks of suitable climate for their recovery. In general, early spring is the best time to clean your lawn.
Step 3 – Configuration
Now before using the dethatcher on the lawn, remove any hard particles or small pieces of rock or pine cones from the lawn. If you want to add fertilizer or any seeds or other lawn care materials, keep them ready and close at hand.
Step 4 – Starting the Lawn Dispenser
Set the height and clearance of the blade. If you set the height of the blade or raked fingers such that they dig deep into the ground, the machine will not work properly and disassembly will not be very effective. Make sure the raking fingers only touch the ground or adjust as needed. Then fill the oil tank and check whether the oil reaches the engine or not. Now pull the starter motor by setting the choke. Once the engine is running, close the choke and run the engine for about 1 to 2 minutes to warm it up.
Step 5 – Using it on the lawn
Once the spacer is ready to use, check each area of the lawn and, if possible, cover the area more than once. For corners, use a manually operated disengaging leaf rake. Lastly, put the straw in a grass bag for disposal.
