My Moss problems
Been fighting moss since I bought my house 3 years ago. I've added more lime than I care to admit to, without much luck. My PH is at 6.0 and I just sent in a sample to see if it changed since last year. I'm surrounded by pine trees and it will cost me 6K to get rid of the closest ones that also block the sunlight, but that's not gonna happen soon.
So what I did last week was hit the moss with the liquid Moss Out and now that it's turned black, I'm using my dethaching rake to pull it all out. I'll be aerating in the next few days to improve drainage, even though that's not really a problem. My question is, while I'm pulling up the dead moss, I'm also pulling up my lousy grass, because it has no roots, and I've got quite a bit of totally bare spots. I'm not going to overseed because it never works for me in the spring, so what should I do with those bare spots over the summer? Should I just mix in compost? Any suggestions?
