Is there a method to dethatch zoysia best without harming the runners? I went over a small portion of my lawn yesterday with a thatch rake, and came up with a ton of thatch, but felt like I was catching in the zoysia quite a bit. I tried to exercise care and back off when I felt it catching, but it still felt like it was doing some harm. Is this just a natural effect of detatching, or was I going at it too aggressively?
