|Lawn Sand The traditional treatment to control moss.
How to Use
Apply at 135gms per square metre, either by hand or with a spreader.
Application by Hand
We recommend you mark out square metres on your lawn using either pegs and string or canes. Wear gloves and sprinkle the product evenly as you can at a rate of 135gms per square metre (4oz per sq yd). Initially, spread the recommended amount over one of the squares and then use this as a visual guide for the remaining squares.
Application by Spreader
Set the spreader to the setting that will dispense 135gm per square metre (4oz per sq yd).
Leave the Lawn Sand to work for a day without watering.
If it does not rain within the next couple of days water in thoroughly to make sure the Lawn Sand is taken down into the grass.
Avoid walking on the lawn until it has rained or been watered in.
Wait 3 days after application before mowing the lawn.
What to Expect
The moss will blacken as it dies and can be raked out after 7-10 days.
A second application may be required after 6 weeks for lawns badly infested with moss.
