For greener, healthier looking grass, mix with water at the rate of 80g per 100 square metres of lawn. You can use iron sulphate at this concentration at any time of year as long as good soil moisture is available and there is no strong sun or heat!
2.5kg will cover over 3000 square metres
80g per 8-10 litres of water covers 100 square metres
Increase the concentration to 160g and not only will it have an amazing effect on the greenness of your grass but it will also start to ‘harden’ the turf making it more resistant to disease and fungal attack. This makes it a very common practice on sports turf in autumn and winter. Blackening of moss will also start to occur. For hardening, we recommend applying between September and April when plenty of moisture is available and when sunshine is unlikely.
2.5kg will cover over 1500 square metres
160g per 8-10 litres of water covers 100 square metres
As a guide, use 50g to 1 litre of water when removing moss.
Mosses are plants, comparatively simple in structure and function and, with the Liverworts, comprise the Bryophyta family – one of the least complicated groups of the plant kingdom. Moss is unsightly and often hard to manage. Simply increase the concentration to 400g to get rid of it. Moss grows where there is nutrient poor soil, high acidity soil, compacted soil, or soil that drains poorly or where there is excessive shade basically where grass cannot survive. Sulphate of iron, commonly applied in winter or early spring kills the moss. After the moss turns brown, you can rake it loose with a garden to remove it from the lawn.

Causes of moss invasion:
- A moist turf – poor drainage encourages the fern-like and tufted mosses
- A very dry soil, e.g. over drains, on mounds and ridges
- Cutting grass too low
- Diseased turf
- Dry acid soil
- Low fertility / deficiencies of plant nutrients
- Low nutrient status
- Over-consolidation of the soil
- Shade from hedges, trees, buildings and topography – north facing lawn
- Prolonged periods of wet weather
- Time of year – autumn, winter and spring
