How to feed, weed and kill moss on your lawn
From Spring each year, when the weather begins to get milder, our quiet dormant garden slowly comes to life again!
Lawn care is normally the first and most asked about topic each Spring and early summer, in this article we will take you through one very successful option for managing weeds, moss and feeding your lawn, a product called Westland Triple Care Lawn Feed.
Westland Triple Care Lawn Feed is a 3 in one weed, feed and moss killer for your lawn. It is herbicide free and acts by creating unfavourable growing conditions for weeds, suppressing the growth of common weed species such as dandelions, dwarf thistle and common ragwort. It contains optimum levels of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, the three major nutrients that optimise grass nutrition and health. Westland Triple Care is also supplemented with iron for moss control.
Ideal to use on lawns between March and October, once the threat of frost has passed. You will notice, this is when broadleaved weeds and moss are growing and you may want to control them in one application.
- Application Rate – 50g per square metre in Spring, this can be reduced to 32g later in Summer when moss and weeds are less problematic
- Available in 80m2 box or 350m2 bag

- Apply during dry weather, ideally apply when light showers or heavy dews are forecast or irrigate after 1-2 days if no rain has fallen.
