Lawn Moss Control

Before you attempt to deal with moss that’s growing on your lawn, you must identify why it is growing and tackle that underlying cause in order to prevent the moss from returning. Most moss killers sold in shops are totally unable to do this, so it’s far better to call in the moss control specialists from Lawn & Weed Expert.

Moss does not have roots, instead obtaining its nutrients from the moisture sitting on the soil. It is probably the single biggest problem for lawns in the UK, but the good news is that moss is easy to kill, especially with the highly effective moss control products that we use.

To book a free, no-obligation moss control survey, give Lawn & Weed Expert a call on 0800 111 4958. We remove moss from lawns in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, and most other locations across South Wales.

Remove dead moss from your lawn

Dead moss is fibrous, and unlike dead weeds (which are mostly made up of water), it will not just wither and shrivel away once killed. Instead, it turns into thatch – which does not decompose

Dead moss must be raked and removed from the lawn, and heavy moss may require scarifying or verti-cutting. If dead moss is allowed to stay on the lawn and turn to thatch, it will stop moisture from reaching the grass roots where it is needed. Thatch also creates damp conditions that are ideal for allowing more moss to develop.

Lawns should not be raked / scarified without applying moss control first. You can end up simply spreading the moss spores and making things worse. Be sure to call in an expert to take care of your dead moss for you.
Our moss control services are available in most parts of South Wales, including:

If you neglect your lawn for even a short time, moss can quickly move in and colonise large areas, pushing out the grass. Incorrect application of lawn moss control products can result in scorching and create bare patches, so why take the risk? Contact Lawn & Weed Expert today for expert moss treatment advice.
