Lots of thatch

It’s always amazing how much thatch comes out!

A lush, green lawn is a sight to behold, but maintaining it requires more than just regular mowing and watering. One often-overlooked aspect of lawn care is thatch, the layer of organic matter that accumulates on the soil's surface. While it might not be as glamorous as perfectly manicured grass, thatch plays a crucial role in your lawn's health and overall well-being. In this blog post, we'll dive into the world of thatch, exploring what it is, why it forms, and how to manage it for a healthier, more vibrant lawn.

What is Thatch?

Thatch is a layer of dead and living organic matter that accumulates between the soil and the actively growing grass in your lawn. It primarily consists of grass clippings, leaves, roots, and other organic debris that doesn't decompose quickly. This layer forms naturally as a result of the continuous growth and death of grass and other plants in your yard.
