POPEL Landscaping and Design, can help you to determine if your lawn would benefit from dethatching.
Dethatching services that stimulate the health and beauty of a lawn.
Thatch is a buildup of living and dead stems, leaves, and roots that occurs between the soil surface and the green vegetation of your lawn. This layer of organic material does not decompose overtime. A thin layer of thatch is healthy for your lawn as it will help to retain moisture and increase wear tolerance. However, when the thatch layer builds up to ½ inch or more in thickness it will prevent air, light, and water from reaching the turf roots. Additionally, as thatch becomes thicker, roots may grow in the thatch layer rather than in the soil resulting in a weakened and poorly rooted turf. Dethatching can help improve lawn health and growth by removing the excess build up of plant material between the soil surface and vegetation.
