Lawn thatch results from plants which have withered, remains of stems and flat growing weeds which leads to a severe impairment of the water- nutrient and air supply. The lawn becomes more susceptible to infections and threatens to suffocate under a layer of organic waste. In this matter a scarifier is used as a relief that loosens the lawn thatch. Afterwards the lawn thatch can simply be removed.
Removing lawn thatch is not only a decisive factor for good lawn growth but is also economically important as it reduces maintenance expenditure.
As a preventive measure the application of Maltaflor is recommended. Maltaflor revives the microbial activity in the soil and thereby supports a fast reduction of biological matter.
