Mossy Edges

Moss grows where lawns are unable to compete effectively against the moss. This can be in shady areas, or damp spots. Sometimes the soil is too acid. See our Lawn Library.

Here however is an example of a situation that can be rectified. The lawn at the edge has been cut too short with a trimmer. Because the grass blades are shorter than they should be, the moss is able to outcompete the turf in this area. I'm sure if the grass was allowed to grow to 3" high (like we recommend for all lawn mowing), the moss would slowly disappear.
