Thatch is the buildup of decomposing blades of grass. Over time, thatch builds into a thick layer and impedes the movement of nutrients and water to the roots of the grass. It also prevents the emergence and growth of new blades of grass and can harbor plant disease that is harmful to your lawn.
De-thatching is the process of removing the cut, decaying layer of dead grass. This process helps with the overall growth and health of the lawn. We remove all of this thatch with power de-thatchers – then rake the thatch and haul it way.
