Where is the moss?


In the turf, on pavement?


Either way you can try a Bleach/Water solution spray. About a half pint of Bleach to a gallon of water. Try that for a home remedy. I use that for patio around my house and have instructed many clients to do the same. it works

If doing on pavement it may become slick afterwards. Scrub brush it off with water.

I like to use lesco 12-0-0 iron plus. Use 2oz. per 1000 sq. ft. I use a turbo tee jet nozzle(blue) #TT11003VP nozzle with a solo 3 gal backpack sprayer. At my walking speed I am going about 5000 sq. ft. per gallon. read the label and stay away from walks and wood ect. This iron will stain.

Poor soil drainage as well as poor Ph can contribute to the mossing problem. Excessive Phosphorus is also a culprit. Should really take a soil sample for analysis, otherwise you may only temporarily win the battle with it but lose the war.

Moss is just another plant, the simplest of plants. It will survive when other plants cannot. But moss is a very poor competitor- if other plants are doing well, the moss will disappear. Any kind of stress hindering grass growth can contribute to moss growth in turf.

I have never treated moss. Had a number of new lawns with moss, and just determined what the problems were hindering the grass growth, improved those problems, and the grass took off and the moss disappeared.

I just used a product from Scotts called Moss Control. It will kill it in like 2 days. I saw action the very next day but i let it work for a few days. It turns from a green to an ugly black mess.Then just rake it up depending how much there is. I used a powre rake.
