How to get rid of weeds and moss

Weeds and moss can appear in your lawn at anytime. Even the best cared for lawn can have the odd weed. Weeds and moss can be removed in various ways.

How to get rid of weeds and moss

If your lawn has only a few weeds, these can be dug up using a garden trowel making sure to remove all roots.

Or you can use a selective weedkiller to target these directly.

Scarifying or raking your lawn using a rake or electric scarifier can help remove moss – this may be a temporary solution if your lawn is vulnerable to moss due to shade or water retention.

An alternative way to remove both weeds and moss that appear all throughout your lawn is to use a Feed Weed and Moss Killer product, such as our 3 IN 1 Lawn Rescue.

3 IN 1 Lawn Rescue is a lawn feed that does three jobs in one – it kills weeds, kills moss and feeds and greens your lawn. This also means that it works in stages.

The application rate for this lawn feed is 32g per m2, this can be spread using your hand when wearing a glove or by using a spreader.

Once you have applied the product, water it in until the granules dissolve and disappear off your lawns surface.

The product works in 3 steps.

Step 1:

Weeds and moss are killed off

Step 2

This reveals darkened spots of dead moss and weeds that will need to be raked out, removed and reseeded.

Step 3

With moss and weeds removed, 3 IN 1 Lawn Rescue begins feeding your grass, and in just two weeks, your grass will become green, thick and lush, and the results will last across six weeks.

To keep both weeds and moss at bay, take action as they begin to appear. You can also keep your lawn healthy by regularly feeding it.
