The Vancouver climate provides the optimal growing conditions for moss. Not what you wanted to hear if it’s in your lawn, right? Moss looks pretty in a garden or container, fair enough, but not in your lawn. So, how do you get rid of it? The biggest problem with moss is that often no matter how many times a homeowner gets rid of it, it keeps coming back.
Moss thrives in conditions that grass doesn’t like, so any areas of your lawn where grass struggles to thrive may be providing the perfect conditions for moss growth. While we look at moss as a weed, it doesn’t have a root system or take up nutrients the way your grass or other weeds do, so that makes eradication difficult. The best way to keep moss away after you’ve gotten rid of the initial infestation, is to correct the conditions it thrives in and tip the scales in favour of your grass.
