It would help if you thought about what has caused the moss to be there in the first place. Moss grows on lawns that are wet, badly drained or shaded. Sometimes bad drainage is caused by the soil being compacted. That is why it helps to aerate lawns. This can be done using a machine or even just a fork, continually dug in and removed. Sometimes bad mowing practises will have helped the moss to thrive. If you think your lawn is wet, badly drained or shaded, can you do anything to change the conditions? If so, you have a good chance of growing good grass, where the moss was removed.
Have a look at Monty's video on lawn renovation:
I use iron and scarifier ,last time I got out 30 rubbish sacks ,with the snow this winter I can see the moss is back just as bad.
I have tryed making holes but the lawn is 500qu. meters and living where I do you can't hire the machine to do the job . Is there a animal I could use that would eat it ?
Our concrete roof tiles have chunks of moss on them, we were advised by a surveyer to remove it.
On removing some, we find it has eaten into the tiles so this years job is to remove it all.
The problem is the moss will retain water and this puts a great weight on your roof.
