Thatch consists of areas of lawn where dead grass and debris accumulates between the soil and the freshly mown tops. Over time, the thatch breaks down as mulch would so it can be good for your lawn by promoting growth through supplying vital nutrients.

Too much thatch is a problem. Once the thatch accumulates to a depth of approximately 20mm, the thick thatch layer begins to choke your lawn by preventing water, fertilizer and air from reaching the roots. The thatch layer also restricts sunlight so that it can’t penetrate to the base of your lawn which means disease and breeding insects can take hold.
To determine if your lawn needs dethatching, test to see if a firm finger prod can penetrate down to the level of the soil. If the thatch is thick, matted and difficult to separate by finger force… it’s time to get your lawn dethatched.
Dethatching is a specialised task that is best left to the professionals who will have the right equipment and the knowledge to effectively dethatch the lawn and ensure it returns lush, green and healthy.
Vertimowing is the trade name for removing thatch from lawns and is an affordable solution for achieving a lush green lawn, particularly when it’s part of a regular lawn service.

Absolutely above and beyond. Brad did an amazing job. Six star service! Would highly recommend. Would hire again if I was still in WA.
5+ Colin is incredible at what he does. Always happy & bubbly & extremely helpful. I recommend Colin to anyone needing their Lawns mowed or gardens maintained within the Bentley area 🙂
Craig was very friendly to the staff member he met as he arrived early at our premises. Will definitely get him back again if we need mowing done in a hurry.
Always does a great job. A really nice guy too.
He did a thorough job of mowing, as well as trimming some bushes around our property. Looks good and neat. Looking forward to have him back soon to kill the weeds!
Excellent to work with, had all the equipment you would need on a 5 acre property.
He was so patient and considerate and really listened to what I wanted to achieve long term in the garden. I also felt we were very much on the same page in terms of long term goals. Very friendly and kind plus very competent. Would recommend him in a heartbeat.
Bill did a great job with my lawn, he was friendly and offered me advice on how to take care of my lawn, which I really appreciated. He was quick and efficient.
Fantastic, very professional and has always been great when my little boy goes out to see ‘Mr Brett’. Highly recommend!
Not only did he come the day he said he would, he also did the job for me there and then and a great job he did. I have already recommended him to people already.
Marks work was exceptional, so glad that he is now going to be maintaining this property on an ongoing basis. Thank you & thank goodness for Mark.
I found Richard wonderful to deal with. He’s punctual, courteous, very professional and has done an amazing job. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who needs lawn and garden work.
Excellent , friendly service, and great value. Very prompt and professional. They did a very thorough job tidying up afterwards too.
Andy completed all work as quoted and gave helpful recommendations on changes to the retic which he also completed at the same time. Kept in contact to let me know when the work would be done and when completed. Excellent customer service.
Lawn looks incredible! I’ve had a few compliments on it. I wanted it done to surprise my father who tries to do the lawn but has Parkinson’s and isn’t able to do it any more. He loved it. Thank you for fitting me in so quickly.
Mark called me within an hour of me requesting a quote on the website! He came around to give me a price on the same day and came to do the lawns the following weekend. Mark was very helpful and did a fantastic job in the garden. Would highly recommend him.
Good price. Did a superb job and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely continue to use him.
