While dethatching removes the layer of thatch above the soil surface, aeration removes actual plugs of soil from your yard. With looser, more nutrient-rich soil, root systems can spread out and grow deeper into the soil. Holes in your yard may not be glamorous, but they'll quickly fill in with dense, healthy grass.What is the difference between a power rake and a dethatcher? ›
