Most people do not realize that moss can grow on grass, as well as cement, until their lawns are filled with mossy growth. Whereas weeds thrive in sunlit areas of your lawn, moss thrives in shady areas that aren’t in direct sunlight. Moss can flourish for many reasons including poor lawn drainage, soil compaction, poor ground fertility, and improper mowing practices. Contrary to popular opinion, moss doesn’t kill the grass, so there is no lasting damage to your lawn. However, moss does reduce your lawn’s beauty and eye-appeal. To rid you of this nuisance, we first apply a product consisting of mostly granular iron. After this is done, consistent mowing, routine watering and fertilizing, and also aerating will keep lawn moss at bay. Aerating the soil refers to a method that professionals use to loosen the soil and discourage moss growth. Many people know that moss grows on cement so it isn’t surprising that it would grow on compact soil as well. The steps you can take to ensure that your lawn is full and thick, and keeping the moss at bay is to:
- Mow your lawn weekly
- Water in the summer months
- Apply fertilizer every two months
- Aerate your lawn at least once per year
