I'm trying to get my lawn to be healthy and am having a few problems. I have lots of tall trees which prevents most of the AM sunlight. We've brought in a couple of tree people but they wanted to leave the trees in and never cut down the trees that are blocking so much of our sunlight. Now I have moss in some spots and patches in other. The spots with the moss seem to have rich soil whereas the bald spots seems to have very dry and silty soil. I know its late in the season to be working on this but I was wondering if there was anything I could do for either. For the moss, I have heard that its becase the soil is too damp. I've also been told to try a mix of dawn soap or bleach with water in a spray bottle. I dont know what type of application I should be using in terms of ratio and quantity per sq ft. I'm reaching my wits end. Its been a persistent problem for years. The other spots that are bare and where the soil is very dry, I've tried putting down some lyme with some seed. Is there a quicker way to get my lawn going? I was reading in other posts that we should mow the lawn not too high and quite often. How often is too often per week? I mow it every week as it is so is 2x or 3x in a 7 day period too often? Also what are the general rules of thumb to keep a healthy lawn each year? Such as when do I start the prep, what kind of weed and feed do I use, lyme? Any nitrates? thanks.
