During cool and moist weather, moss can establish in shaded areas around the garden, including in lawns.

Moss growing in lawns can start to compete with the grass and adversely affect the look and health of the lawn.

Yates Weed n Feed Mosskiller Fertiliser is a concentrated blend of iron and nitrogen and applied over mossy patches in lawns it will quickly burn and kill off the moss. After 2 weeks, the dead moss can be raked away.

The rich nitrogen in Yates Weed n Feed Mosskiller Fertiliser will also help feed the lawn and encourage good growth. A strong healthy, thick lawn is better able to resist moss infestations.

For a hose on alternative use Yates Moss Algae Hose On.  This is completely safe to use on your lawns and any hard surfaces.

To reduce the chances of moss returning, aerate the area with a garden fork.

It will also help to reduce any shading over the lawn by trimming overhanging trees and shrubs.
