Mossy Lawn? We can help.

At this time of year, lawns can become mossy. In some cases, some grassed areas can become more moss than grass.

It's nothing to be embarrassed about because it happens quite often in the North Shore.

The causes are usually simple, but the cures are slightly more complex.

The main causes of mossy lawns are:
  • Chemical imbalance in the soil
  • Insufficient light on the area
  • Excessive moisture

The soil's chemical imbalance is usually a sign of long term neglect or lack of awareness of the situation. It can be remedied.

A lack of light in the area can be the result of excessive growth of trees and shrubs surrounding that area. We can thin those areas to permit plenty of light so that the new growth in spring will be strong enough to avoid this issue next winter.

Excessive moisture can be slightly more complex. How the extra water arrived on your land is the first question and is followed by "why is it still there?". We can assess your site and make recommendations on how you might like to proceed to chance that circumstance.

We have developed a private formula which may assist your immediate needs without the necessity of complex remediation. It's a quick fix and may help your needs.
