Stop moss from growing in your lawn by removing the existing moss and by creating a future lawn environment that enables the growth of grass and disables the growth of moss. Moss is opportunistic, filling the void that bare patches on your lawn provide. Prevent future moss infestation of your lawn by opening up more direct sunlight, aerating the topsoil, and actively regulating the topsoil’s PH balance.
Cover the grass seeds with ¼ to ½ inch of clean topsoil.
Increase your topsoil's PH using lawn lime. Increasing PH is beneficial to the growth of grass and harmful to moss.
