At first, maybe you don't see it in the yard. After all, it's green. But, when you look more closely, that shady part of your lawn has turned into fuzz. Moss may look nice on rocks and trees, but in lawns it means trouble. Moss is a shallow-rooted plant that spreads by spores and rhizoids, or root like structures. It loves the grey, wet days of late fall and early winter, and looks for a home in your lawns weak spots - where it's damp and shady. Moss is not a good neighbor to grass. It smothers your lawn, and sucks up vital nutrients. So you don't want it around. To control it, use a moss control product.
Prevent Moss from Growing
To prevent moss, apply Scotts® Turf Builder® with Halts® Crabgrass Preventer in the Fall (August - October), after temperatures have cooled and fall rains have begun to prevent moss (except in California) from becoming established during winter or next spring.
Any time moss is growing, apply a product that contains a moss control, such as Scotts® Turf Builder® with Moss Control or Scotts® Moss Control Granules. It kills moss and feeds your lawn. That should help even the shady areas of your lawn look the way they should.
