We bought a home about a year ago that had new sod. We've managed to keep the grass fairly healthy. It looked good last summer. We put a weed 'n feed type fertilizer on it in the fall. It has a problem with moss now. We applied lyme last week (mid-Feb). Should we add anything else to combat the moss? Also, when and what type of fertilizer should we use? Lots of rain and cooler weather here, especially in the winter. The lawn does get sun when the sun is out. Thank you for your help!

Maybe you have discovered the reason the previous owners laid new sod before they moved.

There are not too many lawn enthusiasts here, and I am definitely a poor "lawn" keeper as all the grass around our property is essentially pasture. Some weed and feed products will damage you shrubs and other ornamentals. If you just keep it mowed regularly, your lawn will look pretty decent whatever is growing.
