Moss time is never far away! Moss should be considered as a Wonder of the World! Well it sure is when you see moss carpeting a forest floor, in a rockery, riverbank, in gardens or on rotten logs. However, this often loses its appeal when its growing on the South side of your house or on the slippery paths adjoining it so it's definitely MOSS ERADICATION time again.

Get Rid of Moss

Remove moss by using either Wet & Forget® 5L Concentrate or Rapid Application® 

IMPORTANT:

You cannot use regular Wet & Forget® 5L (blue) with the Rapid Application® Sniper Nozzle. It will NOT work!

     The active ingredients are the same but the dilutions are different.
     Coverage of 100-300 sq metres is exactly the same for both products.
     Common coverage is about 100-150 sq metres  when used on ‘absorbent’ porous surfaces.

 How to remove moss using Rapid Application® with the new Sniper Nozzle

  1. Attach your hose, turn to ON and off you go!
  2. No mixing! No measuring! No mess!
  3. Choose a cool, dry day to apply it.
  4. Saturate the dry surface you are cleaning with the Rapid Application.
  5. NO rain for the first 6 hours - Then, just watch the surface come clean over time.
  6. Only one application! (except in extreme cases of heavy contamination).

  • Total saturation of the surface with this product is essential in order to obtain a good kill of the moss, mould, lichen, algae and fungi.
  • Make sure the surface is dry in order to get the best penetration of the growth with the least amount of evaporation.
  • If the surface is particularly bad, do a second application, approximately one month after the first application. Then allow the surface to weather naturally.
  • Nature will take its course. The growth decomposes while the rain gently removes them from the surface over time.
  • After the first application, use as a maintenance tool. Only re-apply at the first sign of regrowth.

How to get rid of moss in your lawn with Wet & Forget® 5L Concentrate?

  1. Wet & Forget is best applied when the lawn is dormant.
  2. Firstly, lightly water the lawn but not enough to saturate the moss. Do this late in the day when the sun is low so that evaporation is kept to a minimum.
  3. Dilute 1:7 (1 part Wet & Forget to 7 parts water) and spot spray the moss.
  4. You may have to apply it a couple of times until you have it under control. At worst you may get slight burning on the grass but it will recover very quickly.
  5. Rake the dead moss out.
  6. Broadcast area with garden lime to change the ph levels.
  7. If it’s early Spring or Autumn, overseed and fertilise.
