Thatch is dead plant material which nature has not been able to break down and which instead has formed an impenetrable layer below the grass layer.
Once the thatch layer exceeds 5 mm in depth, the performance of the grass changes, as the water permeability gets worse. The roots grow closer to the surface, and the root mass and the oxygen exchange decreases. As a result the grass becomes less serviceable and can no longer withstand sports and other activities.
