Talk to Homes & Gardens Tom Monson from Monson Lawn and Landscaping shared his method for killing moss while avoiding damage to the grass itself.

“Killing moss without decimating your lawn can be tricky,” says Tom, “but a dish soap solution can make it easy with a little care and attention.”

As soon as you start noticing moss growing in the grass, you should mix two ounces of dish soap with a gallon of water.

If you have a large garden, you may need to increase these amounts, using about two gallons of water for every 1000 square feet of grass.

Tom suggests using a spray system to cover any problem weeds with this solution.

Once this has been applied to your garden, you need to leave it for a day while it dries.

Once the moss has dried, simply take a garden tool of your choice and scrape it off – if you have a lot of moss, you might want to buy a rake so you don’t spend hours removing every inch of moss.

While this shouldn’t damage your greenery too much, if you start to notice damaged areas, you can restore your lawn to health by planting some fast-growing grass seed.

Another method to get rid of suds is to use baking soda, although it’s not as fast as dish soap.

The baking soda method has similar steps to using dish soap, simply mixing two gallons of water with a small can of baking soda instead.

There are ways to prevent moss from building up in your lawn, but it really needs to be done in early spring, so if you’ve missed that window, using dish soap will be the next best thing.
