Lawn Aerators vs. Dethatchers

What's the difference?

Lawn Aerators Explained

Lawn aerators pull up soil from the ground to provide air, nutrients, and water to old soil

When to aerate your lawn

The best time to aerate your lawn is early October - not too hot,  not too cold...just right

Lawn Dethatchers Explained

Lawn dethatchers pull up dead grass from your soil's surface, allowing it to breath and prepping it for aeration.

When to dethatch your lawn

Dethatch your lawn right before aerating - this gives the best results for the over-seeding process.

Dethatcher recommendations

Electric dethatchers are some of the most satisfying tools on the planet. We used Sun Joe's dethatcher for our lawn.
