This page has information about our service of converting lawns to moss only- moss lawns.
lawn before- mostly moss with grass and weeds
moss wants to be your lawn!
If your lawn has moss throughout, we casn easily turn it into moss only- within a week.
If your lawn has moss in more than half of it but some areas with zero moss, yes we can convert it to all moss. We wouldn't need to do much work at all but it would take up to a year for moss to grow and spread. There would be no brown spots during the conversion to all moss.
Price:Moss lawns are low cost, high value. The price to convert a mossy lawn to moss only is per square foot and per visit.

For moss we can do it at waay less than half.
Moss lawn care:Moss lawns are very low maintenance. Instead of you mowing, we come by and spray just a few hours total per year. You just water your lawn as much as you have so far, or waaay less. See below for moss facts vs common myths.
Grass lawns pollute the air just by growing. As lawns grow they release significant amounts of volatile organic compounds; butanone, ethanol, methanol and propanone. That's just during the day, not at night. When a lawn is mowed, the fresh cut grass emits those compounds at a rate around 180 times higher.
Moss lawns are an excellent response to air-pollution.if one wants to take control of ones own contribution to air pollution, and one happens to have a lawn with a lot of moss, converting to a moss only lawn, is a very significant reduction in air pollution*.
Moss is a symptom of lawn problems, not a cause of them. Moss in the lawn as an indication that the grass is stressed by one or more common problems. Unless conditions are changed, grass will decrease. To have a grass only lawn, there are two ways; constant fertilizing, or a quality lawn renovation that includes maintenance (aerating & top dressing).
The shade myth.You don't have to have shade to have a moss lawn.There are around 12,000 species of moss, some species don't like shade. Moss has a wider growing range of light exposure than any other plant. So, yeah, moss in 100% sun areas.
The hardy myth. We all think of moss as being torn up easily, it is torn up easy. But moss grows well on paths were people walk. If your lawn gets torn up, and have brown spots- why not have moss with brown spots and no grass to mow?
The water myth. This is really neat, moss greens up in the summer, just water it for a few seconds, it greens up within a few minutes, immedieately, right before your eyes. Moss doesn't have roots so it needs around ten times less water than grass. Some species are more drought tolerant than any other plant, so yeah- some moss species prefer very arid areas.
Diseases and insects that affect grass do not affect moss, so no worry about pests in the lawn and going to the garden store for pest controlling chemicals.
Have you ever wandered through a forest and admired the bright mossy beds catching the glint of sun? Grass could never look so brilliant. It is the moss that imbues forests with that wonderful lush quality which soothes the soul and softens the contours of the earth. You could achieve that same beauty in your lawn- a moss lawn.
