    I had some turf put in around 3-4 years ago and now it's dead to say the least. I mean theres moss growing everywhere, some places nothing grows and others a few patches left. I have more dandylions (sp?) then anything else. It's just plain sad. I have tried everything my local hardware store had suggested. Hell, my father even caught it on fire. Because of some stupid myth, I don't know. Do you guys have some suggestions or anything, even a 1-800 number I could call.


    Also, NEWBIE! Can't wait to learn.

    Sounds like a shade problem. Plant myrtle.

    I would man, but I'm in a very small town in the north of Canda. The population is around 900, so there isn't anyone that could really help me on the subject in the area.

    Everything Rob C said but I would add that also sounds like bad drainage. At least down here when we have a moss problem it usually means bad drainage along with ph and to much shade.
