How to Kill Yard Moss Naturally


Kill Moss Naturally and Keep Safe

Moss will likely grow in your lawn where there are bare areas with poor drainage, excessive shades, diseases and grass varieties which are not suitable for the area. When comparing to healthy grass, areas of lawns covered in moss will not make for a great looking lawn, let alone a half decent back yard cricket pitch.  You can remove moss by using chemicals such as ferrous ammonium sulfate and ferrous sulphate, however, if you have small children and pets that may eat the grass, there is a natural way to combat the moss infestation. The ingredients that you will need are easy to find in your kitchen or at the grocery store.

Here are the steps on how to kill the moss in a safe and natural way.

To Get Rid of That Moss, You will need:

  • Water
  • 475 mls  of Baking Soda
  • Some aggressive stirring:)


  1. First, buy a small box of baking soda and add approximately 475 mls into 7.5 litres of lukewarm water. Stir the mixture vigorously until the baking soda has dissolved into the water completely.
  2. Then, fill a watering can or plant sprinkler to spread the water mixture over the moss. Let it dry so the mixture can perform its action. Although the soda baking mixture will kill the moss, it will not prevent it from returning. You can continue to the next step if you want to prevent a reoccurring moss problem.
  3. Moss grows in shady and moist areas, so increase the level sunlight for the areas infected. Trim the overhead trees to unblock the sunlight. You could also plant shade-tolerant grass and then mow it to the tallest recommended mowing height. The other way is to cover the area with mulch.

Remember To Preserver

As soon as you see a trouble area crop up on your lawn them simply apply the same technique as above.  Eventually you will remove all traces of moss from your surroundings.
