I Have Moss In My Lawn, What Should I Do?
Moss is a serious problem in our area because of our cool, moist weather and abundant shade. Grass that is stressed in shaded or excessively wet areas often is invaded by moss. As long as these conditions exist, moss will persist. The ideal long term solution is to change the environmental conditions or stop trying to grow grass in these areas.
The best way to rid your lawn of moss is to treat it with an iron based product. Then once it has died, rake it out and over-seed. If your lawn has large areas of moss, raking may not be feasible and you should consider having it thatched to get the dead moss out, and over-seed afterward.
When you over-seed, be sure to cover the grass seed with a thin layer of peat moss to help hold moisture and keep birds from eating the seed. Once your lawn has filled back in, you should maintain a healthy lawn with a balanced fertilizer program.
