    I have to reseed 2 medium size yards with large portions of these yards covered in moss. I have them now trimming the trees to get more sunlight in there, . I want to know what is the easiest way to reseed over the moss , I just want to get some other opinions

    THANK YOU

    I would rip out the moss, and then overseed with creeping red fescue, and some fert. :cool:

    1MajorTom - 'Lawnstudent' has it nailed down, most fixes dont include the PH test..
    Very informative post.

    I had to deal with Moss in putting greens and the only thing that worked for me was Copper Sulfate just use it just like the label says.
