I live in the Seattle, where due to the rain and lack of proper sunlight moss is a problem. This product does the job and then some. Not only does it kill the moss, but it helps green up my grass better than most 2 for 1 fertilizers.

I applied the recommended amount with a scotts rotary spreader. This was followed by a lot of rain. After two weeks my lawn is thin and presents yellow stripes. The product is not specific to moss but also hurts grass, it seems. In retrospect I should not have attempted to control moss chemically. Moss is green and comfy and its replacement would be mud. Moss is the natural species for my shady yard. I feel terrible now each time I walk into my yard. I hope you heed the advice and leave moss be. I sure will in the future.

      Comments about Scotts 5M Turf Builder With Moss Control (38505):

      This product helps to control the moss in my yard, but needs a little help for complete control. I needed a second application of a moss control in some areas, and raking the moss out helped. However, I live in the PNW. It rains a lot and moss is a problem here. I like the fine texture of Scott's products. Some products are not ground fine enough and don't flow well through a spreader as well. I have also found Scott's products tend to last longer, and I don't need to use then as often as less expensive products. In truth they don't really cost more.

                Scotts Turf Builder with Moss Control provides more even and longer term coverage than other products I have tried. Though it is slightly more expensive, for me it has been substantially more effective at moss control and fertilizing than any combination of other products that I have tried. I have used on my lawn and horse paddocks here in western Washington and am very pleased with it performance.

                  My lawn is lush and green when I use Scotts Turf Builder with Moss Control in the soil in my lawn which has a lot of fir tree influence year round. The PH from Scotts Turf Builder with Moss Control must balance that of the natural soil in my area which has had a lot of fir trees in the past and still has the influence of needles and cones from neighboring firs.

                      Found this last summer. Finally a product that really does kill & control moss in the lawn. I do not need it on the whole lawn, just spots near the house. So with gloves on I use a small plastic container to scoop some out of the bag and shake it out over the areas of moss growth. No mixing, no sprayers - just grab it out of the shed, scoop, shake & put away. YEAH!

                      Used once with spreader did not do much then did a second time and seemed to help. Used once more really heavy and that's did the trick for heavy moss. I just wore a rubber glove and applied with my hand and tossed in need areas last time.. Worked better than the spreader.. Damp grass is a must!

                          I had a large patch of area where it was 50% moss and 50% grass. This product killed off the moss without affecting the grass - the moss effectively turned brown and died out. Now the grass appears to be thriving.

                              I've been using this product for years now and it just doesn't help. soils been tested, all aspects of lawn care have been performed. Last year I had all but one tree on my property removed and still battling moss. I have even taken the product out of the bag by hand and dumped handfuls on the moss patches and it starts to die and then a week later before you can rake it out its greening up again. I found that a flamethrower works, really burn the moss out and replant grass.

                                I applied this product to my lawn over two weeks ago, but moss is still going strong. I emptied the entire bag concentrating mostly on the area with visible moss growth. I can see where the graunules landed, because I can see minute black specks. However, the rest looks vibrantly green. I am going to try the liquid version sprayed with hose. I wonder if Scotts will honor its Guarantee.

                                    The last couple of winters in the Pacific Northwest have been very mild and wet causing large amounts of moss to grow in my lawn. This was the first time I had ever used Turf Builder with Moss Control. The moss in my lawn was so thick that it was hard to push the lawnmower through it. For a moment, I wondered if I should use more product than the indicated amount. After reading more closely, I'm happy to say that following the directions gave splendid results, even with the extremely thick moss build-up. After two weeks, my lawn is healthier and greener, and I've begun raking the dead moss out to make way for a thicker lawn. My lawn is well on the way to becoming beautiful again.

                                                      I have used this product for a couple of years now with great results each time. In the Pacific NW (Oregon) moss is a problem each year but varies in intensity depending on how wet the winter and spring The 2-13 winter and 2014 spring was very wet with lots of moss showing up in my 5K area lawn. Your product wiped it out almose completely on the first application. A small follow up application cleaned up the very small amount left.

Most impressive was the result on the thickest moss growth. The grass also changed to a deep green. Very happy

We now use it 2x a year, and with Weed control to help with the dandelions, our lawn is the best we have ever enjoyed. Our lawn is nearly a half acre, so this work is expensive, bur cheaper than re-sodding, which is something we had done in the past.

But over 2 seasons our lawn if finally looking like grass instead of weeds. We don't use it in the backyard because we have dogs and worry about the safety so it's taking longer to get in shape.

I have used it quite a few times but each time the moss returned. When I first apply the product it does seem to kill the moss, it turns brown. However after a couple of months the moss returns.

There are still many areas/clumps where the moss seems completely unaffected. I applied exactly as inducted by directions on bag. Guessing a spray moss killing product may be more effective?

I applied this stuff to a moist lawn in mid-April, with heavy rain for the next 48 hours. The moss was significant to say the least, but it withered and died in less than a week, leaving open soil to seed. Thanks, Scotts!

                                                                                                    I think the product worked well and did what I needed. As far as the value it could be a little cheaper.
