Lawn thatch results from plants which
have withered, remains of stems and roots and flat growing
weeds and 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 out of
the soil with knifes. Afterwards the lawn thatch can be simply removed.
Detaching is not only a decisive factor for
a good lawn growth but is also economically of importance.
Reduced maintenance expenditure (e.g. scarify) and the reduction of
damages relieve labour and finances.
The application of Maltaflor-fertilizer
is recommended as a preventing measure. Maltaflor revives the
microbial activity of the soil and promotes so the early removal
of remaining plants.
