Moss in planting areas

Asked April 5, 2019, 10:45 AM EDT

I have lots of ground moss in areas planted with shrubs and flowers like iris and day lilies. Some areas get a lot of sun, but all get at least a moderate amount. How do I get rid of it and help prevent its return?

Clackamas County Oregon

Thank you for your question. We live in the moss capitol of the world—and they will outlive us! But here is an OSU article, with links to specific control options, that may be helpful: http://bryophytes.science.oregonstate.edu/page18.htm Good luck!
