I have recently moved house and the small lawns are like sponge and full of moss. I would like to buy and airator (think its called that), it spikes the lawn and takes our small plugs of soil, then brush in sharp sand to improve drainage. I know I will have to use a moss killer, but when can I begin these jobs.
Mate, i recently watch a video on a gardening site. This guy fixed the moss problem by.
