Grass

I recently just over a week ago put down some moss killer with added weed killer etc. Some areas are starting to go black but not every were I put it. Do I need to 're do it. Also the grass is growing is it ok to still cut it . I'm a learner about grass problems. Hope someone can help me please

    Did you cover every area sufficiently? It's easy to miss some bits - I do it every time.

    I'd not worry about it too much - you can always apply some again in 6 or 8 weeks to the bits you missed. If it's the dry version, I presume you've watered it in well if there's been no rain?

    You can still cut your grass, but rake out the dead moss first. Regular mowing without taking too much off will also help the grass to thrive  image

    Ah -  that's usually necessary to avoid the product scorching. For the same reason you apply it when the ground's damp.  I'd give it a thorough soaking and then see what it's like after a few days. You could probably still give it a light cut before you do that if you really feel it needs it. 

    Don't worry too much about it though. Grass recovers from most things!  image
