One of the more common issues that you can find in most lawns across the country is a lawn that becomes thatched. This occurs when excessive (more than 1/2 inch) of thatch builds up around the base of your lawn's grass. Thatch is defined as a layer of living and dead organic matter situated between the green part of your grass and the soil in which the grass is growing. When it becomes thick, it creates a great place for pests and disease and interferes with the proper growth of grass roots.
While there are all kinds of ways that you can go about dealing with a thatched lawn or repairing the damage from a thatched lawn, the best way is to ensure that it never happens to begin with. Luckily, preventing thatchy lawns isn't all that difficult a prospect, and mostly means that you need to expand on things that you already do.
