Thatch

My Fellow Turfgrass Combatants,
Good job.  Carry on with your great work in the service of your lawn.  In this block of instruction, I will discuss THATCH.  That's right; you heard me.  THATCH.  Thatch buildup results because you are not following orders.  So, it is your fault.  Thatch can be a good thing - but like many good things; too much is NOT good.
 
Lawn thatch is the buildup of excessive unwanted material in your lawn that can choke out air, water, nutrients and sunlight.
