I have attached two pictures with this post. The one on the right is of the weed that covers our front garden – it looks like a very light and soft moss to me and seems to be very much covering the surface and spreading fast.The other picture on the left, is of the weed covering the back garden. And now that winter is over I have noticed there’s a lot less grass and a lot more of these patchy areas. The soil is very damp and trodden hard so there’s not much drainage/air getting in. We have two dogs in our back garden so I imagine that’s where the hard soil came from.Any tips on what I should do first? Would spreading grass seed be advised? I assume I should do something to tackle the weed first.
