The Q&A Archives: lawn too thick

Question: I would like to know how to thin my lawn? It is so thick water just sits on top.

Answer: I suspect that the roots and stolons are quite thick under that nice green top and it is time to dethatch. You can rent a power dethatcher or you can rake it out by hand (and a lot of elbow grease). I would vote for using a power dethatcher! Good luck with your project!
