Lawn Care Question

Asked March 9, 2019, 11:48 AM EST

I replanted my front yard 2 years ago and now and starting to see moss growing in it. Any recommendations on how to treat this and get a healthy green lawn again?

Thank you for your question. The simple ‘problem’ of your having more moss than grass is that the environment is perfect for mosses and not for grass! Unless the conditions change, you’re going to be dealing with this for so long as you try to grow turf. Here is an OSU Extension article expanding on this, with suggestions about handling it: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/em9175.pdf Hope this helps. Good luck!
