How to prevent/remove moss in your lawn?

Prevention is better than cure. By keeping your grass healthy and strong through proper fertilisation, mowing, aeration and cutting. Moss thrives in the following conditions: damp, shade, waterlogged, drought, where there is lack of nutrients in lawn, or where the lawn has been cut too short. It is very difficult to stop moss growing so be sure and use the appropriate moss treatments in the Spring time and in Autumn.

Lawn raking, using either a spring tine rake or an electric machine with hook line tines are relatively good at removing dead moss, moss killer in liquid form can be more effective than granular form. To promote microorganism activity, aerate the lawn to a depth of 7 to 10 centimetres (3-4″) at the start or end of Summer (May or September).
