Thatch Management for Home Lawns
MetadataShow full item record
Thatch is the intermingled layer of living and dead grass stems, roots, rhizomes, and stolons that develops between the lawn's live green vegetation and the soil surface. A moderate thatch layer is beneficial, but excessive thatch creates problems. This leaflet describes how to check for thatch and how to control it.
