    The liquid is easier to apply, works faster, and is more cost affective.

    I mentioned that we know about the cultural controls and we do work on educating clients. I see moss out in full sun areas. Lol

    Sometimes you just gotta dig it up

    Or embrace it and make it a moss garden

    Some people plant it on PURPOSE!

    Thanks dude. Agreed about the lime benefits in our neck of the woods. I guess I should dilute mine asap, in a 55 gal drum. It may fall out of solution but that's easily fixed with a quick mix. I'll charge the same rate as well. Appreciate your input. Have a great season.

    How do you mix it up? Do you mix it in a 55 gallon drum or drums? And if so, what do you use for a mixing paddle? I was thinking a long drill-driven paint or plaster mixing paddle.

    I use a skid sprayer which has a 200 gal tank. You might be better off using a granular product like Rid Moss.

    What about Quicksilver?

    Looks to be spendy. The FE is affective here and inexpensive. I have never tried a backpack sprayer like the op mentioned. If I didn’t have a skid sprayer I would sub it out or use a granular product.
