Spring is the time to give your lawn a jumpstart with dethatching and aeration. Dethatching removes the built-up layer of dead grass clippings that can choke your lawn. Aeration creates small holes in your soil to allow nutrients and water to get down to the roots. Handyman rents walk-behind powered dethatchers and aerators as well as tow-behind models. For best results, do this annually between early spring and early summer, once grass has begun to grow.
