I just wanted to let you know that I finally got outside this weekend to use my thatching rake and let me tell you, it’s AMAZING! I did only a quarter of my yard, but it was the most messed up part. I took up about 8 or 9, 35 gallon garbage cans of dead nastiness out of my lawn. I was able to dethatch and seed the area I was working in about 2 hours. I have a lot more trouble spots to take care of, so I imagine I’ll get to “play” with my new rake for quite a few more hours, but overall, it saved me time and did a MUCH better job than what I could have done with a leaf rake, great product.
