i have a decent size area of backyard that is just about moss covered.
would i be better off just trying to tear it all up and start over or
apply a moss killer, power rake the area once dead and then reseed?

Shade is usually the problem. Plant with a ground cover such as : myrtle, pachysandra, lamium, ivy, euonymous, stonecrop, ferns, hosta, coral bells, columbine, ajuga, rhododendron.

Shade is one problem, but acidic soil will also be an issue. Have a soil test done and add lime and other amendments as specified. A soil test is inexpensive and it will give you real information rather than guessing.
