Moss How Lawn and Weed Care Wirral Can Help To Control it.
Moss is probably the most prevalent lawn care issue and it is also frustrating to control and can occupy almost any lawn.
Moss is very common in neglected lawns where the grass has been allowed to become thin and weak due to lack of or poor maintenance. Moss doesn't have roots so obtains its nutrients from moisture sitting on the soil. This means that moss removal treatments need to target the conditions as well as the growth. Something that standard moss killers won't do effectively so your moss will return time and again.
The mild damp autumns and winters are ideal for moss growth due to lack of grass growth and poor light for this time of year. Moss thrives and quickly develops where grass is weak. Weeds are easy to control, moss is slightly more difficult and requires regular attention. Strong healthy grass receiving regular applications of lawn care resists moss better than under nourished lawns.
