The front of my house is facing north. Over the Autumn & Winter I get a lot of moss in the lawn. I treat it with evergreen 4in1 to remove the moss, which leaves me with a lot of bare patches and it takes about a month to fill in. Is there anything I can use to keep the moss away over the winter months.
I would be grateful for any advice




try improving the drainage of the turf. spike the ground especially in the wettest parts and brush in lawn sand to help.

If you ever felt like reseeding there is a grass seed mix designed for shady lawns, though I don't know anymore about it than that. It might be robust enough to survive the moss...

Or give up on the lawn and replan the area lol...

A bit of limestone might help with that, also, though I would get the soil tested first so you don't get too much. That idea's no good next to Rhododendrons or Camellias, though.
