Good morning I found that scarifying worked for me.
Not easy or a pretty sight but once the moss revealed bare patches...I then sprinkled not-peat compost on those parts (looked good - black against the green!) and carried on with the lawn as usual (mowing, edging and feeding - lawn food). It took two seasons, spring to spring, but didn't look too bad in subsequent summers. Now down to a small patch of clover - where that came from is a mystery.
Just back in for a cuppa from an early morning session as it looked like rain - trimmed lawn edges and hope to mow later today... if it doesn't rain.
Good luck. keep in touch as to how things work out.
