Every lawn has a layer of thatch between the soil surface and the green grass. Although it contains some living grass parts, thatch primarily consists of accumulated dead grass stems and roots that resist decomposition.
A thin layer (one-half inch or less) is desirable, as it helps insulate your grass against extreme heat and cold. Its cushioning effect also helps your lawn stand up to traffic. But when thatch builds up beyond one-half inch, it predisposes your lawn to problems and limits the benefits of lawn treatments. Need help with Thatch. . . Give Us A Call!
