This product is 5 Gallons of D-Thatch thatch digester and is shipped in two 2.5 gallon buckets.
Okay so first off, what is Thatch? Thatch is the layer of dead turfgrass lying between your healthy turfgrass and soil/root system. It usually consists of stems, stolons, rhizomes, and roots that haven’t decomposed.
Why is this bad? If it becomes too thick, the thatch layer blocks air, water, and nutrients from seeping down into the root system, which are needed to help your grass thrive.
Having this layer is also bad because it promotes diseases and insect infestations in your lawn. Reason being all those nutrients and water are just hanging out in the thatch layer which the microbes and insects treat as a buffet.
How does D-Thatch help this? D-Thatch is used for one thing and one thing only. To chew through that top layer of thatch and get good grass to soil contact.
We also want thatch to go back into the soil and turn into nutrients for the lawn. We don’t want to scrape it off and send it to the dump.
What’s great with the D-Thatch is that it accelerates the decomposition of those stems, stolons, rhizomes, and roots so they can go back down into your soil and become nutrients for the lawn.
N-Ext D-Thatch™ focuses on composting thatch faster by encouraging microbial activity at the soil surface and increasing heat. This exothermic release by increased soil activity will breakdown thatch from the soil level up. Thatch is quickly reduced and the organic matter is captured as a food source for your turf.
If you have a dog that kills spots in the lawn from urine, dead or brown spot areas that were diseased and now attempting to recover, or even grass clippings leftover on the lawn - you can use D-Thatch to eat through the dead grass and deliver those nutrients right back into the soil!
This video explains how to use D-Thatch in your lawn:
The recommended application rate is 6-9 oz per 1,000 sq ft.
This product is shipped in two 2.5-gallon jugs.
1 gallon = 128 oz
2.5 gallons = 320 oz
5 gallons = 640 oz
At the app rate of 6 oz/1,000 sq ft, you will get:
21,300 sq ft of coverage from a single gallon
53,300 sq ft of coverage from a 2.5-gallon jug
106,600 sq ft of coverage from the full 5 gallons
For a 5,000 sq ft lawn, this means you will get ~21 total applications:
6 oz/1,000 sq ft x 5 = 30 oz
640 oz/30 oz = 21.3 total applications
Keep this in mind when you decide how much you need. If your yard is not that big, consider splitting with a neighbor or family member.
