The unsightly and frustrating weed that reeks havoc in many of our British lawns, moss, for it's simple structure is a force to be reckoned with.
Moss can be chemically treated by moss killers which can be found at your local garden centre. However on many occasions the moss or Bryophyta family can be found growing again. The reasoning behind this is that moss can be caused by a number of factors which should be taken into account when first thinking about the treatment of your lawn:
Type 1. Polytrichum Species
When it comes to moss in lawns there tends to be 3 main types:
Type 2. Caratodon Purpureus & Bryum Species
Type 3. Hypnum & Eurhynchium Species
Non chemical ways of treating moss would be to scarify your lawn in Autumn. Scrifying is hard raking to pull as much of the moss away from the ground. You can do this with a long, thin tined rake or if you have a larger garden.
