Moss Removal

In the UK, there are over 600 species of moss. Mosses are resilient, adaptable and non-flowering plants that thrive in areas of excessive moisture, shade and poor turf quality. They appear as dense green clumps or mats. If left untreated moss will continue to spread over the lawn, diminishing the grass growth and will eventually suffocate the grass entirely.

Lawn Renovation

During the autumn months, the weather is typically mild enough for the grass to continue to actively grow. As a result, autumn is the ideal time to renovate your lawn as the grass can be stripped back and repaired with plenty of time to recover before winter sets in.

In humid weather the disease becomes more evident to the eye as thread-like strands or webs of coral pink to blood red hyphae grow on the tips of the grass blades.

Lawn Mowing Advice

Your lawn should be mowed as regularly as you can do it; at least once per week during the main growing seasons of April – June and September – October. This can be relaxed during the height of summer if a drought develops as the growth will slow. However, it is important not to let the grass get too long at any time of the year, including winter, as this will reduce the quality significantly, increase the likelihood of moss invasion and reduce the aesthetic appearance of the grass.
