Sitting at my desk with the wind howling, the rain battering the windows and the guttering hanging off the side of the house, I contemplate my decision to move from a nice cosy office to an outdoor job. Am I mad… it is quite possible that I am.
However, there is a proverb that says something along the lines of ‘…for every problem there is an opportunity.’ And over the weekend I had the chance to look at a number of lawns and guess what? They are covered in MOSS. Moss loves damp, cold, miserable conditions. It loves lawns that are compacted, lawns which are saturated with water and generally lawns that are forgotten about over the winter months.
Getting rid of moss is not easy – in fact on some lawns moss may never be completely eradicated – after all, we live in North Wales (or close to it). But treating the causes of moss is achievable – removing the thatch on the surface of the lawn makes it harder for moss to get a hold. Reducing compaction means less standing water and better drainage into the soil. Giving the lawn a good feed, strengthening the grass plant and generally improving the health of the lawn, as well as proper mowing and edging will also help reduce moss.
There is also an old Hindu proverb which says ‘A man who misses his opportunity, and the monkey who misses his branch, cannot be saved.’
At LawnOrder, we are not monkeys missing the branch.
