Damp and rainfall allows the moss to invade.
Moss can often be found in lawns where drainage is poor; the soil is compacted and low in nutrients. Treatment and moss removal by lawn scarification will be required in most instances.
Moss can be a perennial problem in many lawns. The only way to really eliminate moss from your lawn is to eliminate the conditions conducive to moss growth. Lawn aeration can be the key to effective moss control as it will improve drainage and alter the conditions that moss needs to develop.
