Dethatchers Remove Unwanted Thatch Buildup from Your Lawn
In order for your lawn to breathe and receive the nutrients it needs to grow stronger and healthier, you should use dethatchers at least once per year to remove thatch from your lawn. Thatch forms when dead roots and stems intermingle with living grass, and it tangles and forms a thick layer on your lawn. Kmart carries a selection of professional-grade lawn care equipment from Sun Joe and Craftsman to maintain your lawn and garden.
Before you use any push mower or other lawn equipment, you should run the Craftsman Electric dethatcher at least once over your lawn. When you continuously mow the lawn without removing the thatch, grass clippings cause the thatch to build up even more. Removing the thatch allows more air to circulate through the grass, which in turn lets moisture reach the soil and roots.
Even when using commercial mowers on business property, using a dethatcher greatly improves the appearance of the company's landscape. Look for thatch in and around bushes and flowerbeds, as grass and plant roots have a greater chance of intertwining and creating problem areas for the lawn. After removing thatch with the Sun Joe 11-amp electric dethatcher, cut the lawn cleanly and evenly with a Stanley 54-inch Dual Hydro walk-behind mower. Because it has a 54-inch cutting deck, you cut more grass in less time, allowing you to move on to the next job more quickly.
With an electric dethatcher, you don't have to worry about gas or oil, which also means less tune-ups. In addition, an electric model provides the same amount of power as a gas-powered dethatcher, and it's also more environmentally friendly. If you run a "green" landscaping business, consider investing in electric dethatchers and cordless rechargeable mowers. Models such as the CEL DualMOTOR offer a 24-volt rechargeable battery, which supplies up to an hour of steady cutting time. Furthermore, a self-propelled model pushes the mower forward, so you get your job done without working too hard. Combining an electric dethatcher with a rechargeable mower helps you create a professional-looking lawn in less time and without having to stop and refill a gas tank.
Use dethatchers at least once per season or once per year depending on the growth rate of your lawn. Shop Kmart for even more affordable lawn care equipment and garden supplies for your yard.
