Moss in the Lawn
Mosses spread between grass stems and gradually displace them, causing the lawn to become matted. Moss overtaking your lawn signals an imbalance in nutrients, waterlogging, or inadequate air flow. Your soil may also be at the wrong pH. Moss thrives in lawns that have been cut too short and amid weak plants in general, which is why moss is best cured by raising the cutting height and fertilizing adequately. Use a scarifier to remove moss from the lawn, then work on restoring balance.
