Frequently Asked Questions

EverGreen Mosskil with Lawn Food

Q1. When can I use EverGreen Mosskil with Lawn Food?
A. EverGreen Mosskil can be used between April and September when the soil is moist and the grass dry in frost free weather.
Q2. Can I spread it by hand?
A2. Yes, some gardeners do apply it by hand but it can be difficult to ensure the granules are spread evenly. We would usually recommend that the lawn be marked out into convenient areas, usually 1 sq yds or 1 sq m using stakes and strings. The correct amount of product can then be weighed out to cover that area (1oz/ sq yd or 35g/ sqm) and evenly spread over the area. Alternatively use a lawn spreader such as the Scotts EvenGreen Drop Spreader to achieve even application.
Q3. The wind blew some granules onto my patio and now there are brown stains, why is this?
A3. This product contains a quantity of iron sulphate as a mosskiller and this may have caused the discolouration. For this reason, we do place a warning on the pack that iron sulphate can cause stubborn brown stains on clothes, paving slabs etc and that the product should be brushed off immediately if accidentally spilt onto such surfaces before it gets wet. A 50:50 mix of lemon juice and water, or vinegar and water may help dissolve the stain, please test in a small area first. If this does not help then rust removers may be purchased from hardware stores.
Q4. When can I use it on my new lawn?
A4. Providing the lawn is over 6 months old and growing well you can use EverGreen Mosskil with Lawn Food at the recommended rate from April to September.
Q5. Do I need to water the granules in?
A5. Yes, if no rain falls within 2 days lightly water the lawn to activate the granules. Very heavy watering or rainfall may wash away the ingredients before they have worked.
Q6. When can my children and pets go back on the lawn?
A6. Once the granules have been watered in and the grass thoroughly dry your children and pets can go back onto the lawn. All our products are cleared for use as directed by stringent Government pesticide regulations. This means that they are considered suitable for use as directed in areas where children and pets have access. We recommend restricting access to the treated area during mixing, application and drying time of the product.
Q7. How often can I use it?
A7. EverGreen Mosskil with Lawn Food can be applied at a maximum rate of twice a year with a 3 month interval between treatments.
