All lawns have at least some thatch. But when your lawn has too much thatch, problems occur. Thatch is the layer of living and dead organic material that lies on top of the soil. It is made up of surface roots, stems, and crowns of grass plants.
f a layer of thatch between the top growth and the root zone measures more than ½”, de-thatching is recommended. De-thatching usually only needs to be performed once every two or three years. Thatch can be removed in the summer, fall, and even when the lawn is dormant in the winter. De-thatching isn’t recommended in the spring during the transition between dormancy and active growth because at this time the energy and nutrient stores in the grass roots are low.
