DD Gardening: Sorting out the moss in the lawn

first_imgThere’s barely a day goes past which doesn’t involve someone asking me about moss in their lawn – it seems there is little attraction in following the current fashion of having moss lawns which is sweeping gardens in cities.Although moss has a role, and indeed is attractive, in the wider landscape in our lawns we definitely don’t love it.The visual manifestation of moss is the end of a long chain of neglect (sorry!), and simply killing the moss is the same as painting over a damp wall – the conditions still exist for the dampness, you’ve just temporary hid the problem. Advertisement Killing moss is easy. An application of Sulphate of Iron will kill the moss, but then you’ll have to scarify or rake out the dead moss.If all the raking doesn’t float your boat then look out for the Mo Bacter product in the garden centres, this product will kill the moss but instead of leaving it all black this product dries the moss out and then this is digested by the bacteria contained in Mo Bacter and in turn consumed by the lawn, giving the lawn a lush colour.By killing the moss in either of these two ways you’ll temporary improve the situation, but to keep the lawn moss-free you will have to apply these products each and every year, which can be timely and expensive.So after using any of the products mentioned it’s then best to treat the cause of the moss problem, the compaction and the acidity of the soil. Advertisement Apply some lime to the lawn now (preferably Calcium Carbonate or Ground Limestone) to ‘sweeten’ the soil and remove one of the conditions moss needs to do well.In addition to this sweetening of the soil the removal of compaction in the top soil layer will further discourage moss from re-appearing and will improve grass growth without the need to apply any fertiliser.Lawns become compacted simply as a result of the years of you walking up and down it with the lawnmower and the pounding the soil gets from the rain here in Donegal. So the process of relieving compaction should be something you perform every few years (depending on levels of wear this could be as little as every 5 years).Hire a hollow-tine aerator from your local tool hire shop:> Drive this over the lawn and this will remove small cores of soil form the grass layer> Gather these up with the lawn mower> Spread some shard sand over the lawn> Brush this over to try to get as much sand into the core space as possible> After all this apply some lawn feed to thicken the lawn. This topdressing makes a great job of the lawn, and really encourages the grass to thicken and grow better AND will make your lawn more usable in the Spring and Autumn period.DD Gardening: Sorting out the moss in the lawn was last modified: April 8th, 2017 by Gareth AustinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:dd gardeningGareth Austinlawnmosslast_img read more

The three are very much capable of producing a descent performance against any side in the top flight. Adding the likes of club captain, Willy Kavuma, the Fort Portal based side will be a hard nut to crack.Team News:KCCA FC will be welcoming back captain Timothy Awanyi who has been struggling with fitness in the last few weeks. They will also have Nicholas Kasozi, Muzamir Mutyaba and Patrick Kaddu in contention after overcoming respective injuries. Ibrahim Saddam Juma remains doubt for Friday’s opener but Musa Esenu, Jackson Nunda and second goalkeeper, Tom Ikara will not feature.For Tooro United, they will be without Vice-captain Timothy Musinguzi and Eddie Ruhweza. Apart from the two, the rest of the squad is at Bbosa’s disposal to choose from.What the coaches are saying:Mike Mutebi, KCCA FC. “We go into the game full of confidence after winning a couple of titles in the build up to the league.“We are well prepared for the game but expect a good challenge from Tooro United.“I expect them to come here and try to play but am confident my team will be able to get a good result.Wasswa Bbosa, Tooro United. “Thank God we have had excellent preparations apart from a couple of injuries.“Soana is more than ready to face KCCA and am confident whoever i chose to play will get the job done.“Lugogo is not an easy place to go to but we go there for three points and nothing less.Match Facts:KCCA goes into the game, unbeaten against Soana in the last seven competitive games (W5 D2), including the penalty shoot-out win in the Uganda Cup on 21-03-2018.Tooro United’s last victory over the Kasasiro Boys dates back to a 2-1 victory at Kavumba in April 2015. The victory is one of only two wins over KCCA ever since they (Tooro United) gained promotion in 2013 (D2 L7).Last season, KCCA defeated Tooro home and away scoring five goals and conceding none in the process.The reverse fixture saw the Kasasiro Boys triumph 1-0 at Lugogo. Young-star Julius poloto scored the goal with only a couple of minutes to the end of the game.KCCA FC finished second last season while Tooro United narrowly escaped relagation, finishing 12th.The other league fixtures on Friday:-URA FC vs Paidah Black Angles, Mandela National Stadium-Namboole @04:30pm-Vipers SC vs Ndejje University, St. Mary’s Stadium-Kitende @04:00pm-Bright Stars vs Maroons FC, Champions Stadium-Mwererwe @04:30pm-Kirinya JSS vs SC Villa, The Mighty Arena-Jinja @04:30pm-Onduparaka vs Nyamityobora, Champions Stadium-Arua @04:30pmComments last_img read more
