The Top Five Tips For Getting Rid of Moss In Your GardenRemove the Moss Manually
The first step to ridding your garden of moss is to get out there and remove it by hand. Most will peal away in sheets if you exercise a little caution and pull gently.
Increase Light to Your Garden
Moss grows in low light conditions. Prune your shrubs and bushes to allow light to penetrate to the inside of the plant and to reach the soil level.
If moss is creeping through your garden bed, replacing the top layer of soil will remove the moss spores and rid your garden of moss. Rake or scoop away the top inch or two of soil and replace with fresh soil.
Moss prefers cool, damp soil. Use caution when watering your plants by providing only what they need to thrive. Allow soil to dry between waterings.
If soggy soil contributes to your moss problem, improve drainage by adding compost, peat moss, leaf mold or other organic matter to the soil when you prepare the bed for planting. Soil that drains well is less likely to support the growth of moss.
