All about moss

31st Mar 2021 Diseases

Moss is a very common issue in lawns.  It will appear if you have shade issues of varying degrees, poor air circulation, poor drainage, compacted soils and soils with low fertility or a low or high PH balance.

Weak lawns and poor lawn care practices encourage moss. Irregular mowing and mowing your grass too short are common causes of giving moss an opportunity to  take hold in your lawn.

Applying little or no fertiliser is also a common problem which leads to poor turf growth.

Prevention is better than cure so a good lawn management routine helps, including scarification and aeration. Consider your mowing regime and use a regular quality fertiliser programme to encourage vigorous grass growth and keep moss at bay. Other ways to keep moss at bay is to ensure more light, improve the drainage and keep traffic on the lawn.

If you have just turfed or seeded your lawn you will currently be moss free however the moss spores can still be in the ground and will gradually come back so applying a regular moss treatment will help to prevent moss from returning in the future.
