It has been a very wet year, and a lot of us have had problems with moss on the lawn. Rather than just killing the moss, we need to start with eliminating the cause of the problem.
A good way to do this is to aerate the area with a tine hollow aerator, then fill in the holes by brushing in top dressing, followed by applying a good moss killer. Our best seller is MO-Bacter which starts at £22.99, but there are several others on the market, for example EverGreen complete 4 in 1. When it has worked its magic, you might be left with bare patches or a very sparse lawn. The remedy for that is to over seed or patch seed. We stock a whole range of grass seed from Johnsons – there should be one that best suits your needs, for example shady place lawn seed.
For patch seeding, Patch Magic is an easy solution – just open the tub and sprinkle onto the patches, then water in. Prices start at £11.99 and will cover up to 13 patches. If your lawn happens to look very good and just needs a feed, this is the time to apply. If your lawn is large, we suggest using a spreader when applying to give an even distribution. We stock two different types: Scotts rotary spreader suitable for very large gardens, and also Scotts drop spreader suitable for all gardens. Both are adjustable for most products. We also stock a simpler drop spreader that is compatible with the EverGreen lawn foods. The Scotts spreaders are also handy when applying MO Bacter.
