to burn all the old dead grass clippings, so the lawn can start fresh. There is also the hope that any seeds from weeds and/or stickers might burn along with the dead grass. If the grass is thick and is never raked, a layer of dead grass builds up and air is cut off which may also result in a layer of mold and other diseases damaging the grass.
