Is it okay to have a mossy lawn?

Moss is a great option to high-maintenance grass for the rest of us. Moss can be used as grass. It is a beautiful, springy groundcover that can be walked on lightly, and has a rich, deep, and tactile color. This might be the right choice for your lawn.



Is it also bad to have moss growing in your yard?

Moss will not overtake your lawn or kill it. Instead, it will fill in any gaps that are left. If your lawn is suffering and moss is filling in the gaps it could be a sign that there are deeper problems such as poor drainage, compacted soil or low soil pH.

What is the best time to remove moss from my lawn, other than what I have just said? The best time to remove lawn moss is late spring or early summer. moss must be killed before you seed your grass. This is best done in the fall. Apply the dish detergent and water combination when the grass is damp.

A moss-covered lawn is also possible.

The intersting green look and the sensory pleasure of walking on moss creates a beautiful visual. This brings us to the important question Can you walk in a moss yard. Yes, you can. However, moss is not suitable for areas that are heavily used and will retreat from footpaths.

Is Moss a winter-killer?

Although moss does not die back in winter, it doesn't usually release spores in colder temperatures. It's easier to kill it before the heat hits, and less likely to have to return later to kill any spores left in the dirt.
