Moss removal

Zone Lynnwood, WA, 98087 | [email protected] added on May 17, 2016 | Answered

I've got some lovely ground cover which is being overtaken by moss. Will a moss remover kill my ground cover, also? The moss is spotty and intermingled.

Remember that moss will not harm or kill the ground cover, just slowly take over any open ground.
Unless the growing conditions change, the removed moss will come back over time.

Hear, hear! I completely agree. I wasted a lot of time raking and killing moss but not addressing the reason it was there in the beginning!
