When talking about #grass thatch, pay attention: it is not a synonym of #mulching. The residues of this cutting method decompose rapidly, while the thatch is made of living and slowly decomposing organic elements. If it’s present in small quantities, the thatch is very positive for our turf: it gives elasticity, it attenuates the effects of trampling and protects the soil from external agents. If it is excessive, however, the #lawn is likely to suffocate and the new plants will grow above it without the ground protection. In these cases, specific dethatching operations are required.
