How to Use

By Hand

EverGreen® Mosskil with Lawn Food needs to be applied at a maximum individual dose of 35g per square meter (1oz per square yard).

To achieve the correct application rate, it's best to mark out the lawn into areas of 1 square meter (1m x 1m), and apply the 35g evenly.

By Spreader

Make sure the lawn is marked out in runs, and that the walking pace is at a rate of 1 meter per 1 second.

For use with Scotts EvenGreen Drop Spreader - spreader setting is 6

For use with Scotts EasyGreen Rotary Spreader - spreader setting is 27

When will I See Results

Results are quick, after 7 days the lawn will look richer in colour and the moss will start to blacken (any blackening of the grass is temporary)

After 2 weeks, the lawn will need to be vigorously scarified (raked), to remove the dead moss, the grass will then re-establish.
