got a question for the gurus out there. ive got a customer that put lime down on their yard around the middle of october last year to try to get rid of the moss thats taking over their yard. they still arent seeing any difference. ive heard it takes about 6 months for it to work but that seems a little long to me. any suggestions, tips, etc?

Moss is usually due to the lack of enough sunlight. Fix the shade problem. That is the proper thing to do....or plant myrtle.
I would not lime without doing a soil test to see if you need lime. There are a couple of moss control products (like Scotts), but I am doubtful of any long term success.
