Moss grow in low fertility, in compacted soils, high soil acidity, poor drainage, overgrowth in grasslands, or a combination of these factors.
It can be found not only in landscapes but also in various surfaces, including roofs, rocks and walls.
Moss are green plants with a central stem where small leaves grow. Typically, they form a thick layer on the surface of the soil.
Since they have no real roots, some bananas have root-like ribs, which serve as roots to absorb water. Other species water from their leaves. If there is soil in which moss grows, it needs a little.
Moss breed spores sometimes in very wet areas during the year. Although moose are not aggressive, they are considered lucky because they grow up in conditions that support growth.
Although bananas do not harm your lawn or your garden, you may not like it or remove it. Recognize that physical or chemical removal is a temporary solution unless basic conditions for moss growth are corrected.
There is no chemical control in garden and flower beds that does not harm other plants. In this case, use it to scrape off the floor and remove it from the garbage bags.
To prevent regrowth, correct soil conditions conducive to growth. You may need to do a soil test for this.
Aerate (cores) work in compost to improve compacted soils and soil structure. You may need to cut or remove some plants to allow more sunlight.
Adjust your drains in the morning to keep the garden empty and the area dry.
You can prune your lawn to remove mold. There are chemicals that can kill grass. However, an environmentally friendly approach is to correct the problem using traditional methods.
Soil testing reveals lime and fertilizer needs. Improve soil drainage and avoid over-irrigation. Remove grass cover to improve the weather.
Shade-resistant grasses or shrubs, shrubs and overgrown seedlings to provide more light and air movement, as dense shade can cause little growth in lawns.
