The moss issue this year could reasonably be described as brutal — it is everywhere, and there is very little that could be done to avoid it. The poor summer last year was abruptly halted when the rain started falling in October, and it was relentless throughout November, December, and January and only now is it showing signs of stopping (hopefully).

What about my moss?

The winter months are the ideal time to address any moss issues that you may have with your lawn. The lawn experts at Greenhand recommend a moss control treatment followed up a couple of weeks later by a treatment called “lawn scarification”. What is scarification? Scarification is the mechanical removal of the moss and thatch layer while at the same time ventilating the roots of the grass to aid healthy growth in the coming spring. How do I know if I need scarification? Greenhand will examine your lawn to establish the depth of the surface thatch and overall sponginess. If there is excessive thatch Greenhand may recommend scarification. What effect will it have on the moss? Moss loves a moisture rich environment so it therefore loves surface thatch as moisture is trapped there preventing it from getting through to the soil below. Scarification removes this surface thatch and therefore the cause of the moss. How does Greenhand carry out scarification? A professional scarifying machine is driven over the whole surface of the lawn getting as close to the edge as possible (approximately six inches). The resulting waste is then removed and put on your compost heap.
