Too much of anything is never good – the same goes for thatch. If left unaddressed, it can choke your lawn unless you apply core aeration.

Seasoned golf course greens keepers and lawn care specialists know that the secret to a thick, green turf is core aeration. By aerating the lawn once each year, the grass roots grow healthier and the plants thrive.

Core aeration refers to the process of digging thousands of teeny-tiny holes in the turf. These “pockets” allow air, water, oxygen, and fertilizer to penetrate the root zone quicker, leading to enhanced root growth and development.

Do You Have A Thatch Problem?

Compacted soil is known to impede the movement of nutrients, water, and air to the grassroots. Since roots need plenty of oxygen to grow and to absorb water and nutrients, this can obviously become a problem. Also, compacted soil contributes to the accumulation of thatch because reduced oxygen levels hinder the activity of thatch-decomposing organisms including earthworms.

Thatch builds up faster on heavy clay soils and compacted soils than on well-aerated soils. Once the thatch depth becomes more than a ½ inch, it makes the root systems weaker and reduces the water movement. Not to mention thick thatch growth can become a breeding ground for diseases and pests.

The key to addressing a thatch involves careful and prudent execution of core aeration.
