Keep moss in and get weeds and grass out.
I recently purchased a home with a shaded yard. The previous owner had a beautiful moss garden, rather than grass. Unfortunately over 4 weeks, grass and weeds have started to over take the area. Is there a product to kills the weeds and grass while maintaining the moss. Also, is there a product that can be used on a continual basis to prevent the growth of anything other than moss? Thanks.
The most commonly used product to kill weeds and grasses in moss gardens contain the active ingredient Glyphosate. Glyphosate is found in products such as Roundup QuickPro, Ranger Pro and Killzall Weed and Grass Killer. There are specific treatment steps of prewatering, application times of day and postwatering that are vital to protect the moss. Due to the sensitivity of moss gardens, we recommend contacting your local Master Gardner in your county for a detailed plan on how to properly treat the garden with Glyphosate. You may find your Master Garnder here.
