Review from Ken about power raking done by Lawn Care MVP.

Ken Lozier

Midvale, UT
I contacted this company late at night on Nov 23rd to get a quote for snow removal. They send me a very professional quote with a easy simple way to accept to start the service. It snowed hard that night but they were here early in the morning to snow blow my driveway / walkway and my stairs leading up to my house. Great job guys!

Frequently Asked Questions
+What is a power rake?

A power rake is a machine with spinning blades that pull dead grass and thatch out of your lawn. We hand rake thatch that was pulled up and haul it away.

Example of a power rake job in Utah.
+What is thatch?

Thatch is a layer of grass shoots, stems, and roots that show up between the lawn’s soil and grass blades when organic debris is produced faster than it can be broken down. Having some thatch is good; it keeps turf resilient and healthy. It provides insulation against temperature extremes and variations in moisture. A good thatch layer is a half-inch thick or less. Grass clippings do not usually contribute to thatch build-up because soil microbes easily break them down in the right conditions.

+Can I put fertilizer down after a power rake?

Yes, we suggest you fertilize your lawn within a few days following a power rake service to help the grass recover.

+How often do I need to power rake?

Power raking should be performed every 1 to 3 years, or when thatch builds up more than ¼ of an inch. A small amount of thatch contributes to a healthy, resilient lawn.

+Can you aerate, power rake and fertilize at the same time?

Due to the particular equipment and personnel needed to complete each job, these services are usually scheduled on different days. Fertilizer should come after power raking though, so that it is not removed with the thatch.

+Can you power rake when the ground is wet?

A little moisture is okay, but if your grass is too wet the soil is not able to hold onto the grass roots as well, which may cause the grass to pull out instead of tear.

+Can you power rake my lawn when it’s hot outside?

We stop power raking when temperatures exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Power raking in hotter temperatures can stress your lawn or possibly killing it.
