Thatch in lawns is often a misunderstood problem. Contrary to what most people believe, thatch is not just a buildup of grass clippings. Thatch is actually a matted layer of living and dead organic material (roots, stems, runners, clippings) between the green matter and the soil surface. Thatch accumulates as this organic material builds up faster than the natural biological breakdown.
The best way to reduce thatch is to get it to naturally decompose faster via a healthy soil teaming with microbial life. The objective is to create a soil that is well aerated and bio-active. ThatchPro™ microbial blend helps ensure that the specific microbes necessary for thatch decomposition are present and viable in your soil. ThatchPro™ is made up of 29 strains of 100% naturally occurring microbes. Several of these microbes are very effective at degradation of lignin (main reason thatch builds up quicker than it can be broken down) and many of its byproducts. Routine treatment with ThatchPro™ can effectively breakdown thatch and return your lawn to a healthy biological normal thatch layer state. ThatchPro™ is a natural product, non-toxic, and is safe for humans and animals.
