    If you do things other than squirt&fert, you might have the client give you the go ahead, to aerate, topdress and overseed, then put him on a sensible irrigation strategy...
    even if you kill the moss, aren't you left with bare dirt???

    well we do that to the lawns that are very bad after the moss control kills the moss off but due to natural causes ie rain we cant control the irrigation systems LOL as for lime it dosen't kill moss off it help condition the soil to help prevent it from returning i couldn't use enough lime to drop the ph to a reasonable level

    We use punctuation. It tends to make life easier for all. Not trying to be a smart a$$, but you will get a better response from people if your posts are readable.

    Good Luck

    Moss generally thrives in an enviroment that is favorable, all plants for that matter. If you do not change the conditions most likely you will not keep the moss away.
