Thatching lawn in Tillamook

Asked March 5, 2016, 7:37 AM EST

I know my lawn needs thatching, but am a little unsure of the best time. Should I try to plan it soon or wait until later in the spring or early summer?

I think that it would be better to wait until the soil is a little drier. If you de-thatch now, you will be out on the wet soil and would cause more soil compaction. As soon as the soil is drier it would be fine. Some folks like to fertilize after thatching.
