Weed Man's Moss Control Service

Moss Control

Achieve a Thick, Green, Moss-Free Lawn

Moss Issues

Did you know? There are hundreds of species of mosses found in temperate climates. However, only a few are troublesome as lawn weeds. Moss may be a problem wherever one or more of the following situations are present:

- Low levels of nitrogen

- Poor air circulation

- Excessive shade

- Low soil pH

- Poor drainage or compaction

- Low mowing height

- Any maintenance practice that puts stress on the grass plants

Controlling Moss on Your Lawn

Through a carefully designed Weed Man Lawn Care program, controlling moss in moist or shady turf, compacted soil or soil with low pH levels can be achieved. In conjunction with Weed Man’s integrated pest management-based approach, this service is applied only when and where needed by a licensed and trained Weed Man professional.

We can apply a Moss Control product in the early spring or fall. Once the moss turns black it must be raked up and the bare areas should be renovated.

The next step is to find and correct the underlying problem:

1. Prune trees to reduce shade and increase air circulation

2. Aerate to improve drainage

3. Have your soil tested to determine pH

4. Adjust lawn mower to cut at or above 5 cm (2 inches)
