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
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.
Children and pets should be kept out of the area during application, Once the area has been watered and is 100% dry, then re-entry should be allowed.
Avoid mowing the lawn 2/3 days before or after application.
If there is no rain fall within 2 days after application, water the lawn thoroughly so that the lawn food starts to work.
The first 4 lawn clippings after application should be thoroughly composted for 6 months, before they can be applied as a mulch.
Do not walk on the lawn after application until it has been watered in (rain, hose etc.), as iron sulphate can cause stubborn brown stains on clothing, paving slaps, decking etc. Any spillages should be immediatley cleaned up and disposed of safely.
