I have some very mossy areas in my lawn, I began to address this with soil samples, aeration, branch removal for more sun and of moss killer last summer/fall. This spring I plan to top dress areas of my lawn. Specifically the really poor areas where the moss has taken the biggest foothold.
Do I need to kill the moss first, or remove it before top dressing? Will a new healthier soil promote moss growth?
My intention is about 1.5 to 2 inches of soil over the very poor areas. So the moss would be covered.
I am interested in specifically what the effect of covering the moss with soil will do. Will it kill it? Make it stronger? Do nothing?
