Thatch is a spongy layer of stems, roots, and dead grass on top of the soil that can harbor pests and diseases. It blocks out air and prevents water penetration. Look for a fibrous, cork material with roots growing in the turf. Use a dethatching rake for shallow layers. Rent a deeper cutting flail dethatcher for layers more than 1 inch deep.
