Winter can be a tough time for lawns and following this this record setting wet winter, moss is everywhere. We fight this every year. Although it is difficult to prevent, it luckily is easy to control. Liquid iron sprayed on a lawn quickly and effectively controls moss. It will kill it in hours, turning it black. Although it is easy to kill, it will regrow every year requiring annual treatment. We have even been recommending treating for moss twice yearly, early winter and mid spring. Moss treatment is normally considered an enhanced service but is relatively inexpensive.
We are currently treating for moss and you will see your lawn darken and part even turn black as the moss dies. Don't be alarmed, this is normal and does not harm the lawn. It helps darken the lawn color while killing the moss.
In our early winter treatment, we also applied products that reduces cranefly infestation. Especially this year we can see the difference where treatment has been applied and where it hasn't. If your lawn has received treatment the chances of significant damage is a lot lower, however if you notice craneflies in your lawn let us know and we will do our best to take care of them.
