MossOff – a great solution for moss problems

by | May 10, 2017 | News, Products | 0 comments


Blackened lawns and a brown stain to the patio can be the unintended result of using ferrous sulphate-based moss killers. Developed from totally natural ingredients and safe to children, pets, ponds and wildlife, MossOff is a major breakthrough for controlling moss in the lawn without damage to either the grass or the patio.

MossOff Lawn Care Concentrate is a new and totally unique biocide-free way of controlling moss in lawns. The unique technology is chemical free and completely safe to children and pets as well as plant life and even fish and ponds. The concentrate dilutes easily and is simply applied using a garden sprayer or watering can fitted with a fine rose. A large 5 litre pack has a recommended retail price of ?24.99 and the 2 litre pack is ?12.99.

The most commonly used solution to moss in lawns is the application of iron sulphate as a granule or solution to be watered on. It?s very effective at killing moss and usually blackens the moss within a few days. The problem is, it can also cause a similar effect on the grass itself, not necessarily causing any permanent damage, but it looks pretty unsightly and may take weeks to disappear.

A much more serious side effect of using iron sulphate is the result on adjacent paving, either by run off from the lawn, or injudicious spraying around the edges. Iron sulphate causes orange-brown stains on concrete and stone and they can be all but impossible to remove, which can be very distressing on a beautiful York stone patio!
MossOff Lawn Care Concentrate is a new and safe way to control moss on the lawn without threatening any stains or other damage to the patio or any other hard surfaces with which it comes into contact. It?s also completely safe to all the adjacent plants and shrubs because MossOff is effective only on moss and algae.

Diarmuid Gavin, garden designer and author, is a huge advocate for MossOff. ?I?ve used MossOff very successfully in my own garden? said Diarmuid: ?It?s easy to use and effective and most importantly it?s safe. Not only for me and my kids and pets, but also to the plants and especially my lawn. I recommend MossOff to anyone who has a problem with moss or algae in their garden.?

No special equipment is required to apply MossOff, simply choose a dry day so that the product has ample opportunity to dry to take full effect. Dilute and water or spray onto the lawn and allow to dry. There?s no need to exclude children or pets from the treated area, and accidental splashes of the product onto adjacent plants or onto the patio will do absolutely no harm.
Based entirely on natural ingredients and with a physical mode of action, MossOff has an official derogation from the Chemicals Regulation Directorate. It?s harmless to plants, pets and wildlife. It?s also available in a multi-surface formula which is suitable for controlling moss and algae on any surface.
