Moss Weed Killer

Bryophyta Herbicide

Description of Moss (Bryophyta):
Moss is a common problem in the lawn, leaving unsightly "bare" patches and thin turfgrass. Culturally, the best way to handle moss is to correct your soil's pH. Moss is a sign of a low and acidic pH level. You can do a soil test to find out where your pH is at and then do a corrective application of lime. I recommend granular, as the powdery stuff is difficult to apply.  The soil test usually lists how much you would need to get the pH to ideal for turfgrass... which is between 6 and 7. If you would like to kill the moss to plant turfgrass, there are control options listed below.
According to the manufacturer approved labels: The following 2 weed killers, applied at the listed application rates, will control Moss.
