Thatch is a good thing, too much thatch, on the other hand, is not. Thatch is a layer of living and dead roots, leaves and stems that accumulates at the base of your lawn directly beneath your visible grass. Thatch provides several benefits to your lawn including slowing water loss, decreasing compaction, insulating grass against temperature swings, and more. But when the layer of thatch reaches a thickness exceeding ½ – ¾ of an inch, it begins to do more harm than good.
Our Minneapolis lawn dethatching services can save lawns that are struggling due to excessive thatch build up. Our experts skillfully remove the correct amount of thatch so that water, fertilizer, air, and light can effectively reach and nourish your soil, without removing the entire layer. By doing so, your lawn can reap all of the benefits of its natural cushion, without dealing with any of the detriments.
