Liquid Dethatching

Liquid Dethatcher is a liquid that has been formulated to generate and accelerate the decomposition of thatch in lawns. To fuel this process, our product contains high levels of thatch digesting Bacteria and Enzymes. These, along with naturally occurring soil organisms, will break down thatch and turn it into valuable humus.

What is Humus?

As decomposition of dead plant matter and animals occurs, nutrients held within the plant matter or animal is released to the soil. This end result of the decomposition is known as hu- mus. This humus represents up to 1 to 5% of the dry weight of the soil. Because it is rich with nutrients, humus can be ex- tremely valuable to the plant. It is also a “sink” to retain mois- ture.

What is Thatch?

Thatch is a tightly woven mat of both dead and living grass parts -roots, stems, blades, runners and clippings -that forms on top of the soil. Thatch soaks up water like a sponge and prevents the water from getting into the ground. The grass roots are found to be more in the thatch layer than in the soil, which means the lawn is more susceptible to heat and drought dam- age. A thatch condition means a weak, insect and disease prone lawn. The photo below is an excellent illustration of thatch in a bluegrass lawn in a clay soil.
If your lawn has a true thatch condition, you cannot alleviate it with hand raking, power raking or so-called “dethatching” machines. These will only skim the surface of the thatch layer. If you dig in any deeper, you will tear out the grass. The best way to reduce thatch is to get it to decompose. For this to occur, you need to create a healthy soil. That is well aerated and bioactive. Liquid Dethatcher makes sure that the specific microbes necessary for thatch decomposition are present in your soil.
