Thatch is a tight dense mat of living and dead roots and stems that grow above

On the other hand,,, soils that perculate adequately, allowing your water soluable ferts to work their way deeper into the rootzone is going to increase the mass of deeper roots, which means a lot better scenario...
Would you agree with that? or do you intentionally grow surface thatch???
Nothing wrong with chicken poo,,, but what does it do for soil structure???
