lawn moss removal

Asked June 4, 2020, 7:32 PM EDT

I have a lawn moss problem! I killed the moss, my question is do I have to remove the dead moss or can I just leave it and fertilize and seed the lawn over the dead moss? or, do I have to remove all of the dead moss and then fertilize and plant grass seed? thank you. dfnovotny@centurylink.net
