Why does moss appear on your lawn?

Moss can appear on the lawn if at least one of the following is present:

  • the acidic pH of the soil – inadequate for the lawn,
  • hard and compacted soil
  • too much shade
  • excessive moisture of the turf
  • lack of/excessive fertilisation
  • low turf density
  • compacted turfgrass and presence of thatch
  • weak turf after diseases or freezing

 

 

Moss as a pioneer plant can invade most habitats. This is a weed difficult to remove. In gardens moss can creep into concrete or stony driveways, flowerpots and even lawns. Also, it thrives well among grass – the weaker the grass is, the faster moss grows.

Informal hedges with their irregular shapes should be allowed to grow naturally to soften the landscape of the garden or to block an unwanted view. They are perfect for informal garden, holiday or rental home, or a farm windbreak.
