What do you use to kill moss around your yard and shrubs?

Moss on the soil around your plants usually indicates your soil is acidic, compacted, nutrient poor, and the drainage is not as good as it should be. The best approach is to rake out the moss and then dig some compost into the soil to loosen it and help it drain well. Compost will also release some nutrients into the soil as it decomposes. You can prune or divide your plants to encourage better air circulation, which will also help control the moss. Good luck with your project.
