Spring Moss Control

Now is the time to deal with any moss that has crept in over the autumn and winter months. Moss gets a hold when the grass growth is reduced to a minimum by low levels of light and temperature in conjunction with periods of high moisture and humidity.
 
Where moss is a problem, apply Lawn Sand at (1 x 25kg bag for every 360m² of lawn) or Greentec Mosskiller Pro from the third week of March onwards. Do not apply Lawn Sand when frost is forecast within 4 days of the proposed treatment. Lawn Sand will turn the moss black and once this happens the dead moss needs to be scarified out using a spring tine rake.
 
It is probably better to leave the scarification for 7 days after application to ensure it has done its job completely. If you have weeds and moss in the lawn then there are proprietary brands of fertiliser available to the amateur gardener which contain weed and moss treatment on the granule.
 
Aeration / Scarification
While the soil under the lawn is still moist, it is worth carrying out some light aeration using a garden fork or a specialised aeration tool. This will open up the soil to allow vital gaseous exchange that needs to occur in the roots and can also assist in drainage. On larger lawns a spiking machine would be a good idea (purchase or hire).
 
The spring is also a good time to scarify the lawn to remove dead roots, shoots and weeds. Use a spring tine rake (or a solid tine rake for more vigorous treatment). Better still, use a scarification machine to achieve good results with less effort.
