Lawn maintenance is a skill rather than just a chore as many may perceive. Here you have a goal and you want to achieve it in all ways possible and the ways are clear cut. The key to establishing, developing and maintaining a beautiful lawn is ensuring you apply proper lawn maintenance practices, all the way from mowing, watering, and fertilizing to aeration. But, it doesn’t end there, your lawn may have excess layer of thatch.
- Helps grass by encouraging it to thicken up
- Keeps grass less susceptible to disease
- Increases the level of water, air and nutrients that can get through to the root zone
- Helps sunlight to reach lower grass blades
Starting from $120.00 for up to 2000 sq. ft.
What is thatch anyway and where does it come from?
Thatch is a brown layer of living, dead and decaying organic matter, (mostly grass leaves), that builds up between the soil and the green grass. It develops after you have an established lawn and have been tending to it for quite some time, let’s say a couple of years.
Okay. Let’s start here. You don’t even notice that your lawn has thatches let alone removal of thatch itself. We will make it clear. If your lawn is properly maintained, we mean getting a lot of attention, then it is healthy. Healthy well-established lawns have thatches. Maybe you cannot see them and as we said, they are okay. Thatches have benefits to the grass on your lawn.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU HAVE EXCEES THATCH?
- Thatch layer that is more that ½ inches thick
- Feels too spongy and has dry spots even after watering
- Is thinning and dying even after fertilizing
- Have a brown appearance after mowing
