Thatch is a barrier between the surface of your lawn and the nutrients in the soil below. A little thatch is good but too much can be a problem. Lawns of Longview can remove excess thatch and perform lawn aeration in order to help maintain a healthy lawn.
Why is thatch a problem?
Over time, properties that don’t maintain proper lawn aeration can accumulate thatch. Thatch is a layer of decomposing turf, dead roots and leaves picked up by mowers and tossed back onto the grass and accumulates over time. This accumulation can prevent water and other nutrients from getting through to the roots of your lawn. It can also make insect control much more difficult.
Lawns of Longview can help identify good and bad thatch levels in order to keep your lawn healthy.
