Moss problem on lawn


I have a problem with moss on my lawn, it does not get any sun and the moss takes hold, I would like to replace the lawn with pebbles but am worried about drainage as it is also on a slope, does anyone have any ideas?

    I'm against people replacing lawn with pebbles or anything else, what about the wildlife? Hedgehogs are struggling because of it.image I'd do something else,don't have a lawn but have terraced walls with flowers in the bedsimage

    You can always have a gravel garden Mandy. As long as the soil's prepared before you plant, there are loads of shrubs and perennials which will be happy there. After planting, use gravel as the mulch. Far better to look at than a poor lawn, and better for water drainage. The maintenance can be easy too if you pick the right plants.

    You'll get lots of suggestions here for a mix of evergreens, shrubs and perennials if you decide to do that. 

    With the right plants, you can have an attractive, year round garden which benefits everyone  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
