If dead grass and lawn clippings get matted down, they create a thatch over your lawn at the base of the grass blades. That can prevent much needed water and nutrients from reaching the roots, and promotes the growth of fungus. Take a look at the base of your grass blades. If there’s thatch of 1/2 inch or more, rent a dethatching machine from your local home improvement store and spend the afternoon giving your grass some much-needed relief.
