Is November a bad time to apply Iron Sulphate on the lawn to kill out the moss? And lastly When is is a good time to prune (Heavy) the apple trees?
My lawn is boggy perhaps due to being on an incline and getting runoff from garden at back. However the problem now is that when I mow the lawn large patches of black wet spawnlike fungus/algae(?) have seeped up. It looks like black frogspawn. This is the garden of a new house so I imagine that the soil is just whatever the builder threw down and sowed lawn seed over.
In effect are lawn sand and sulphate of iron are the same thing? Both kill moss on lawns but is there one better than the other?
is it safe to have children and pets on lawn after sulphate of iron distribution,does dead moss need to be raked out.
How do I apply sulphate of iron in solid form? I tried today in my speader but it wouldn't go through it. I think it was too damp. It just stuck to the bottom. I had to continuously bounce spreader to release it. I fear it wasn't spread very evenly. Also how long do I have to wait before applying fertiliser?
our lawn is badly covered in moss we are considering digging it up and resetting do you think this is really necessary or is there anything else we can try first?
I recently bought packets of lawn repair kits (with 'family grass' seeds and fertiliser) in an attempt to restore my lawn. I have mown the existing grass close to the ground and raked off most of the thatch and moss. Some areas have more moss than others. The past warm sunny spells certainly helped, but now I'm wondering: can I spread the restorer seeds now, or should I apply moss killer first for best results?
Could you please tell me what amount of sulphate of Iron I use to what amount of water? I have read that you can put it on the lawn but I cannot find what ratio, I would be really happy if you could help me.
Do you know if and where mechanised lawn rakes (the ones with flexible steel prongs) are available (my lawn is too big to od it manually)?
I'd like to use lawn sand in my back garden to treat moss as it was successful in the front but our pet rabbit shares our lawn. Instructions say to keep pets off for 4 hours after watering but I suspect this only applies to pets who don't eat the grass. Is it safe to use for rabbits or is there an alternative?
CAN YOU ADVISE MR IF IT IS O.K. TO PUT LIMEON A LAWN TO KILL THE MOSS CAN I DO THAT THIS MONTH.
I'm just wondering if it's possible to make a solution and apply Sulphate of Iron as a moss control to a lawn with a knapsack sprayer? i.e. Will it work the same as applying the dry granuals?The directions say to apply with a spreader at a 30g/Sq metre ratio so just wondering if i can dilute with water instead.
How do I correct this problem without changing the levels?
what is the dilution of sulphate of iron do I use to kill off mind your own business, I do not mind killing the grass in the patch.
We have a problem with moss on our grass we also have another problem - our back garden is very wet and soggy - ok the recent rain hasnt helped but its like a sponge at the moment when you walk on it you can see the water! and hear it squelch.
