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.

Grass 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.

Thatch management can take several forms. The lease labor intensive method   involves the application of CB-712 Lawn Thatch Digester.  CB-712 stimulates soil microbes that  accelerate the natural decomposition of lawn thatch. In addition, CB-712 contains natural organic constituents that promote grass growth. To optimize thatch control, apply CB-712 in early spring when the lawn is in vigorous growth.

Thatch can 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.

WHAT IS CB-712
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. CB-712 is pet safe and is not harmful to humans, growing plants or the environment.
