Thatch, the layer of dead and decomposing grass at the base of your lawn, has an undeserved bad reputation. While excess thatch can choke a lawn, removing too much can ruin a lawn’s ecosystem.
Aeration can help keep the thatch layer healthy, loosen soil to promote root growth, and improve the absorption of water and nutrients into the soil.
