Lawn thatch is a layer of
stems, roots and other debris that accumulates
near the soil surface. When thatch becomes
excessive, the lawn may root into the thatch rather than the
soil. Since thatch does not hold moisture, lawns rooted into
thatch will not tolerate dry weather or cold temperatures. Thatch
can harbor insects and diseases, limit root
development and restrict water infiltration.
The rate at which thatch
accumulates is determined by moisture, environmental
conditions and the type of grass. Over application of
nitrogen promotes thatch accumulations.
clippings do not contribute to thatch accumulation. The type
and vigor of the grass determine the rate at which
thatch accumulates. For example, a thatch prone bluegrass
sod, that is given lots of water and fertilizer, forms
thatch more rapidly than other grasses given less care.
Thatch is a
normal part of any lawn and only becomes harmful when the
thatch layer is thicker than 0.5 to 0.75 inches. When thatch
becomes excessive, the lawn may root into the thatch rather
than the soil. Thatch does not hold moisture and, as a
result, lawns rooted into thatch will not tolerate dry
weather or cold temperatures.
management can take several forms. The lease labor intensive
method involves the application of CB-712 Lawn
soil microbes that accelerate the
natural decomposition of lawn thatch. In addition, CB-712
contains natural organic constituents that promote grass
thatch control, apply CB-712 in early spring when the lawn
is in vigorous growth.
also be controlled with vertical mowing, coring, and/or
topdressing. A vertical mower uses power driven tines to
bring the thatch to the surface. This method can result in
lawn injury and, as a result, reseeding might be required.
Vertical mowing should be carried out in late fall or early
spring. Coring machines remove cores of soil and sod. This
aids in thatch reduction by permitting air and moisture to
penetrate the thatch. Top dressing with a thin layer
of soil can also aid in decomposing lawn thatch.
Top dressing can be combined with coring.
CB-712 is a natural
product, formulated to accelerate the decomposition of lawn
thatch, grass clippings and other biodegradable soil
residue. When used as directed, CB-712 can also
(1) aid in the restoration of soil biomass, (2) aid in
building humus and (3) promote both soil and plant health.
