How to get rid of moss

Zone ML2 7HE | Crazynurse added on May 31, 2016 | Answered

I have a shady, wet garden bed with a few perennial plants including fuchsia and pieris. I have planted gladioli bulbs. There are a few stepping stones around the plants, which along with the soil are covered in moss. How can I get rid of the moss?

You can treat the areas and help introduce air flow to the garden by thinning plants or creating better drainage.

Keep in mind that the moss will return unless the growing conditions change.

You an also embrace the mossy look and create a woodland garden.
