Over the past couple months i have been working on repairing my lawn. I used other areas of this forum for some badly needed help. Now my lawn is looking a lot better.
Over the past two years I just threw the grass and let it lay. A couple months ago I had a soil test and it showed low levels of organic matter. I dethatched and pulled 16 bags of dead grass out of 10k of lawn.
I bought a pair of gator blades for my 46 inch Cub Cadet tractor. Do you think the mulching will prevent the dead grass buildup? Should I use the D-thatch stuff over next summer to improve decomposition?
Also, if you don't have the option to mulch because the grass grew too high too fast, do you bag or just mulch 2x?

No sure what the d-thatch stuff is that you are talking about but it is unlikely that you have thatch, so no I wouldn't use that.
