The 6 Best Thatch Rakes
This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Prevent your lawn from being overrun by weeds, moss, and other undesirable vegetation by clearing out thatch with these rakes. They work a little differently from regular rakes, as you use a push-pull motion to uproot unwanted plants. Be aware that the tines are extremely sharp, though, so wear proper safety gear and watch out for pets and kids while swinging them around. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

The True Temper should be your go-to if you've nearly surrendered your lawn to the weeds and undergrowth. However, it will tax your arms and back, so you might prefer a lighter option, like the Ames Adjustable, if you're mainly concerned with upkeep. We dinged the Wolf-Garten Interlocken UGM3 a bit, as it only comes as a head, but that does allow you to pair it with the handle of your choosing. Users with injury histories would likely be smart to default to the Ames Adjustable or the Corona RK, as they have features like self-cleaning or adjustable heads that can take some of the strain off your spine.
