Asked February 16, 2013, 8:03 PM EST

We have heavy lichen growth on our privit hedges and would like suggestions how to reduce/eliminate this problem.

Moss is caused by too much shade, too wet an environment.
If correcting these issues doesn't work, then a copper spray can reduce moss.

Also you can call the number below (Master Gardeners) for more information.
