Lawn sand is the old, tried and trusted remedy for moss. It can also be used to harden grass off against disease and acts as a turf tonic offering a rapid green up to turf!
Iron sulphate also helps to reduce the pH level of soil which in turn encourages finer grass species and helps deter worms from casting.
Lawn sand acts as a carrier for the active ingredients iron & ammonium, thus facilitating even application.
Apply at 35-70g per sq m for lawn green up.
Apply at 90-105g per sq m at high rate (please be aware this may blacken moss).

It is important to ensure that lawn sand is spread evenly over the turf.
Ideally lawn sand should be applied on a calm, dry day.
For best results apply when rain is anticipated.
Leave mower boxes off for 2-3 days to allow granules to settle into turf.
Over-dosing or applying lawn sand when the soil is too dry may scorch turf.
Lawn Sand should not be applied to wood or stone as staining may occur.
