Power Raking – Calgary

Power Raking for Calgary & all surrounding areas

We are a company that believes in strong foundations. Just as our company was founded on excellent customer service, the groundwork to having healthy grass in the summer is to remove the unhealthy grass in the spring. Power raking your lawn is one of our flagship services because when done right, it sets up your lawn to be healthy all season. We have power raked over 2,500 lawns over the years and we notice a dramatic difference between the lawns that did and did not receive the service.

yard-dawgs-calgary-power-rakingOur spring power raking service includes a lawn mow and trim with every visit. We do this because of the clean finish it leaves your lawn as well as it sucks up the fine grass our hand rakes may miss. We set ourselves apart from the competition by creating a standard for power raking. Every lawn is different; however, a properly executed power rake removes 60-75% of the lawn’s thatch. Less is more when it comes to power raking. With that in mind, just because some grass is not green doesn’t mean it is dead. Your turf winterizes itself over the cold months here in Calgary and if specific grass does not come up with our power raking, it means that it is healthy and will turn green soon.

Every power rakes begins with a lawn assessment, we set our power rakes to the same height regardless of the lawn, however some areas on your lawn may need additional care. We’ll make sure we take this into account. After our power rake has covered all of your lawn, we hand rake the thatch into piles and bag them accordingly. Once we have removed the bulk of unhealthy grass from your lawn, we do a mow to finish the job.

yard-dawgs-calgary-power-raking-expertsAfter a power raking service, you can expect your lawn to have smoother surface. It is now ready for other services such as aerations, slit seeding, and fertilizer. We recommend watering your lawn after power raking because the remaining grass is ready to start growing and turning green.

Our spring power raking services is designed to handle the unhealthy grass within your lawn. Our power raking does not include removing twigs, pine needles, leaves, gravel and dog droppings. Here is a list of good practices for before we come out and power rake:

  • Ensure that your dog’s droppings have been collected
  • Remove obstacles such as chairs and toys from the lawn
  • Rake up any twigs, pine needs, leaves or gravel from your lawn over the winter

If there are leaves on your lawn, we will power rake over them and collect as much as possible with the dead grass, however what we are after here is the thatch within the lawn and we do our “Fall Leaf Cleanups” services in October and November.


Power Raking FAQ

When is the right time to power rake?

Power raking in Calgary typically happens between the middle of April towards the end of May. This service by nature is extremely weather dependent. Even if you have green grass growing from your lawn, power raking is a great way to get the dead stuff under the new grass out.

Can power raking hurt my existing grass?

 Our machines are designed to bring up unhealthy grass. Our technicians are trained and our machines are set to keep the healthy grass rooted and the dead grass taken up.

The purpose of power raking is to dethatch the lawn. We schedule all of our leaf cleanup jobs in the fall after they have fallen off the trees. While at your property, our main priority is to collect the dead grass from your lawn. If there are leaves on the lawn, most will be shredded and collected but we cannot guarantee how much debris outside of thatch we will be collecting.

Power raking should be done yearly in the spring time. When done properly, it proves to be an affective way to prepare your lawn for a beautiful season. Every lawn is different and with Yard Dawgs, we promise to get the job done right. If you are not satisfied with a power raking service, please give us a call and tell us your concerns.
