We had a wet Spring and my soil turned 'green' from a moss that is horrible. What do I treat this with, so I don't kill my flowers? I tried Moss Out and it did nothing. The dirt is green!!

Moss is growing because your soil is compacted and drains poorly. The best cure is to cultivate the soil around your plants and rake out the moss. You can work some compost into the top inch of soil to help aerate the soil and encourage good drainage. This should eliminate the yucky green moss and keep it from returning.
