Moss, acid soil

Using a simple pH meter (from Rapidtest) I checked several areas of moss to see if moss caused, or if moss was the result of acid soil. There was no evidence of acid soil in the moss covered areas.

Well Riggle did you check the spot that had grass growing in them

My understanding is the reason moss grows there is because grass or other ground cover wont

There is some thing missing in the soil if weeds don't grow there some things wrong

Yes, I checked nearby soil--no difference in pH: both were at ph 6.7. This was at the grounds of an old school that had been converted to a public library. Partially shaded area. North side of a 3 story brick building.
I know the needle is hard to see--I had difficulty getting the photo to show the needle.
