I want to use an organic lawn feed and moss remover. I realise it's too late now so this is for the spring.

Has anyone used Osmo or Mo Bacter?

Which would be the best to use, one which doesn't have to be raked out?

Thanks in advance

My garden centre recommended a German product (I forget it's name) similar to Mobacter, which also doesn't need to be raked out. I'll use it in spring.

I dont know how much moss is in your lawn. If there is a lot probably you will need do scarifying first and after spread moss remover.
Aeration will help too. Moss grows on damp soils. aeration will improve drainage.
Regarding to organic fertilizing, sometimes i'm using Atlantic Gold Seaweed Fertiliser & Soil Conditioner. Its dear but 100% organic. Cheaper option will compost for topdressing after aeration.
For moss killing im using lawn sand, its not organic but works fast.
Osmo moss remover works too but 25kg bag last only for 150-180sqm, plus lime before.

A wave of easy to use lawn moss killer products are now available on the market. All these products are offering the same promise of killing moss on your lawns and more importantly not needing to follow up with a intensive day of raking & scarifying all the dead moss out of the lawn.

i used mo bacter last year; seems to have done the trick, the grass is growing well and there's certainly less moss than there used to be.
