Our lawn is about 80% moss and weeds and I'm trying to slowly slowly increase the amount of grass, It is an area of about 350m2 so re turfing and re seeding not an option as also have young children.
The soil is sandy and it is a shady garden, although getting more light in the last 2 years than it has done in years.
In autumn I fed the lawn and was amazed for first time I had some grass in the mower box rather than just hoovering up leaves. Of course the lawn food also fed the moss and with all the rain it has gone crazy.
I've bought some lawn food with moss killer. I'm not expecting it to all go, and don't want it to all go as to some extent I like moss, soft to sit on and play with the kids etc
If I apply the lawn food and moss killer how bad will it get, my plan is to apply it, then hire an electric rake and rake out all the dead moss in a few weeks and then re-seed over the top...
Sound like a plan ? I have a husband that is saying dont you dare mess it up. he's scared of there just been mud left and little grass. Some back up required before I bite the bullet on this one...
