Lilly Miller Moss Out for Lawns kills moss in lawns so grass can grow into a thick lush turf. Moss grows on the soil surface in lawns where it competes with the turf, causing the grass to thin out and creating an excessive build-up of thatch. Shaded or poorly drained acidic areas encourage moss growth. Apply Moss Out for Lawns to these areas when the moss is actively growing. Moss Out for Lawns gal. covers 2,000 sq. ft. After applying you will see the moss turning black within hours.

Our yard is very large and very wet and, therefore, very very mossy. Lilly Miller Moss Out and Fertilizer product killed the moss very quickly. Once we raked out the moss and reseeded, the lawn looks 100% better. I've used other products that took almost a week to kill the moss and then had to second coat it to finish the job. With this Lilly Miller Moss Out and Fertilizer, I was able to reseed almost right away.
Moss Out works as advertised -- the moss turned black within 10 MINUTES of spraying. I could see it change as I was spraying a nearby area. A week later the treated moss was still black. I have some very thick moss in a shaded area, and thus some of the underlying was a bit green in spots; however, ever there most of it was black, brown, or yellow, and pulled up easily with a hand-held garden fork tool. The instructions encourage one to pull up thick moss ahead of time, but definitely afterwards. I still have plenty of Moss Out left (I bought 5 gallons), so plan to retreat that shady area once I finish pulling out most of the dead thick moss. The only con is the Moss Out bottle with the attached sprayer is not really designed for multiple uses, and started to pop out at the neck after going through several gallons.
This stuff is great. Best when applied when the moss is starting to grow and the ground is just a bit damp. Only drawback is the available sprayers can not be adjusted to specifically deliver the recommended application amount. I wish Lilly Miller would reformulate the product so you can use the available sprayers. I got around the problem by purchasing one of Lilly Millers hose attached spray bottles and reusing it.
I've used Moss Out for lawns (and it's sister, for roofs and pavement) a few times now. It works very well. You can see brown/blackened moss within minutes, BUT let it do it's thing for 5-8 hours. It this point you really have two options...well three. Number three is have your moss grow back. The other two are: 1: RAKE YOUR LAWN with a metal-tined rake. Get a beer or two and sweat it out. You have to do this. if you don't it will grow back because you haven't actually killed all of the moss; only the top layer. 2: RE-APPLY once to twice a year (with a beer or two). Hey...raking out moss is tough, so if you don't have thick spots, you can retreat every spring and fall...
Healthy, thick lawns inhibit competitors, including moss and weeds, but we're not all Hank Hill, so, as far as moss goes, Moss Out does the job!
I followed the label directions for hose end spraying, and treated my entire yard with my Ortho sprayer. Upon initial contact, the moss turned a blackened color. Withing 2-3 days, most of the moss was black. Unfortunately, some of the "killed" moss is returning, and I will need to make a 2nd application. I did not scrap the moss as directed, so that may have aided the resurgence. I have used this product before, and it is the best you can buy, but there aren't too many products that kill moss. I purchased the gallon size because the hose end quart size only treats about 900 square feet for about 12 bucks...VERY expensive.
Pros: does kill the moss
Cons: repeated applications are necessary, expensive, not always available.
After reading the reviews for this product, I decided to go for it and use it on my lawn. At first application, I noticed that the moss turned black and died. Just not sure what to do with the area now as it turned all black.
As far as the quality, this product does what it says and with 8fl oz of it, I was able to cover a 10x10 sqft lawn.
I purchased 10 gallons of it. My yard had bits of moss throughout, and a few places of heavy growth. When moss is found in lawns, it’s an indication that conditions are not favorable for growing grass and the moss is simply filling in the spaces where the grass is not growing well. To get rid of moss, there are several conditions that may be encouraging the moss to grow including: too much shade, acidic soil, poor drainage/wet soils, compacted soil, and low soil fertility. My main problem is acidic soil, so last fall I applied lime to reduce it. I plan on a spring application also. In January, I used my Orthro hose end sprayer at a rate of 3oz per gallon. I spayed every inch of my lawn; 5 gallons worth. After spraying, I saw little black spots (dead moss) throughout my entire yard. As stated by others, the moss is coming back. This past week, I resprayed my entire yard, and still saw little black spots throughout, but not nearly as bad as after the first application. I'm thinking I will need to continue an annual application to insure it stays away.
Pros: works, contains nitrogin so it also greens your lawn
You will be amazed at how well this product works. If you are into instant gratification, use this product. Spray it on moss and in a couple of minutes the moss is BLACK and dead. NO JOKE, dead and black in minutes. I recommend using a pressure sprayer and spot spray. The hose end sprayer works ok, but wastes the product.
I've previously attempted to use granule based products to remove moss from my lawn in the spring. I applied it and watered the lawn and waited a few days as per the instructions but it never appeared to have any affect on the moss. So I always ended up spending hours and hours raking it out in the end. This year I switched to this liquid based product and found it to work much better. I could see the moss turning brown as I applied it. After that it was really easy to scrape out.
Years ago, I found a small canister of Moss Out on a clearance table., It did the job quickly and completely. Since then I have tried many other products but none had the sure fire results; many did little to the moss. Moss Out is not sold in my area so when I learned it could be shipped to my local Home Depot I ordered some. Same absolute results as experienced years ago.
MossOut works great! It really does turn the moss black within minutes. Just apply, wait for it to dry out, and rake it out. Using a power rake for an area of any substantial size is a must. I applied lime and overseeded my lawn to fill in the previously moss covered areas, and the grass is filling in nicely.
I tried the natural way. I tried some other stuff. But only this did the trick. I can finally regrow the grass. I applied it via a regular sprayer I already owned ... guessed a little on the concentration ... applied it to affected areas and could see results the next day. Use a metal rake / hoe to turn the soil. Apply again to ensure you get all the moss.
I've tried all the moss control products out there. This liquid works quickly and effectively. That said you will need to continue application from time to time because, at least in the Northwest moss only slow down, it doesn't die. A hose end sprayer works well and because of the rapid discoloration of the moss you can tell if you missed areas quickly.
