A healthy thatch layer on your lawn helps hold in moisture and prevent drought or heat stress. Excessive thatch build-up, however, can lead to a variety of problems with your lawn's health and appearance. When done properly, de-thatching can help revitalize your grass and reduce lawn maintenance and repair costs. Thatch is a layer of cut grass, plant stems, roots, leaves and other debris that collects on the soil, below live blades of grass that form the surface of the lawn. The thatch will be the brown layer of dead grasses and roots at the center, and in healthy lawns is 1/2-inch thick or less, if anything more, contact a Greenscapes representative. The best times to have your lawn de-thatched should be done in late spring or early fall.
