Have mossy lawn with what appears to be lichen on it (spreading quite quickly) in Co. Mayo. Can you suggest best method to get rid of it?

Moss and lichen thrive in high rainfall areas, especially on acidic soil. Apply sulphate of iron or other moss treatments which will kill both moss and lichen. Garden lime will reduce acidity and so help to reduce moss.
