What is moss?
Moss are hardy plants that can grow in most environments. Moss is dense, spongy, and often grows in thick ‘clumps’, making it a real nuisance for lawns. If left to grow, moss can take up all the sunlight, water and nutrients in your lawn, stopping these vital elements from reaching your grass.
Given the right conditions moss can spread rapidly, outcompeting the grass in your lawn to quickly kill it or prevent it from growing. That’s why controlling moss is one the most important things to do if you want a healthy and thriving lawn.
How can I spot moss?
If your lawn looks discoloured or patchy, if your grass is not growing well, or if it feels spongy underfoot, then these are all signs that you have a moss infestation. There are few factors that encourage the growth of moss, so if these apply to your lawn then you should keep an extra eye out:
- Shaded areas
- Clay soil
- Poor drainage
- Excessive thatch
- Lack of winter mowing
How do we treat moss?
- Moss can be removed using scarification, which gives grass the opportunity to grow through and dominate again. If the cause of the moss is due to excessive moisture, then hollow tine aeration will help to improve your lawn’s drainage and prepare it for any future moss invasion.
- Specially formulated products can also be used to treat moss. These should be followed up by applying lawn feed to encourage the turf to grow and flourish.The most effective products require professional certification.
- Our moss control treatment can remove moss from your lawn easily and without stress. Using professional-grade equipment and products, you can say goodbye to moss and prepare your lawn for any future invasion with ongoing care and maintenance from our lawn experts.
Don’t worry. We can handle this for you.

I would highly recommend Greensleeves
I would highly recommend Greensleeves who restored our baron-looking lawn which had been eaten away by chauffer grubs to a lush green fantastic lawn in a matter of months and we now have them every few months to keep our lawn looking lush and beautiful by treating it. Also lovely pleasant and helpful staff. Thank you Greensleeves.
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job…
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job on the lawn in our new house – turning it from a weed-infected patch of green to a true grass lawn. All in the space of a few months during initially very challenging weather conditions. Very happy with the progress that has been made – thank you.
Good service and good people!
I have been using Greensleeves for a few years now and I am pleased with both their products and service and they definitely know what they are talking about. They come on the day they say they will come, they execute their work quickly and efficiently and above all our lawn has really benefitted from their service.
We have only just started using Greensleeves but our impression of the company so far is very good. All contact with them has been dealt with promptly and professionally. The first lawn treatment was carried out as arranged today and my husband had a couple of queries regarding the lawn and these were answered in a friendly and informative manner.
This Company do a great job of keeping my lawn in tip-top condition. They are very knowledgeable and I feel very reasonable for a job that definitely requires a level of expertise. I initially tried treating my lawn myself but got nowhere near the results of Greensleeves. Would highly recommend.
