When Do Overland Park & Kansas City Lawns Need To Be Verticut?
Some lawns in Overland Park & Kansas City develop a layer of thatch which is a layer of dead organic material that slowly grows between the many blades of grass in your lawn and the soil beneath. Verticutting (or vertical cutting) is a chemical free method of removing lawn damaging thatch layers by slicing rows in to the soil. Upon verticutting a lawn, SK Lawn Care recommends overseeding in which the new seed will migrate into the sliced rows in the lawn and return a lawn to consistent growth and density.
Verticutting has been commonly used by golf courses but becoming more common in recent years for home owners seeking an above average lawn in look and consistency. When thatch issues arise in Overland Park & Kansas City lawns more problems could be present but not apparent to homeowners. When a layer of thatch begins to accumulate between your lawns grass and soil the result can lead to insect problems, may hinder water reaching the roots of your lawn, and could create the perfect environment for diseases on your lawn.
