MO Bacter - Natural moss killer
Moss can quickly take over a lawn, bullying out the grass, and making your garden spongy and uneven to walk on. Many people turn to moss killer products to keep this invasive plant at bay, but often with disastrous consequences, where lawns can quickly turn an unsightly black.
The good news is that not all moss killers work in the same way. Where black patches do occur, this is usually because the product contains sulphate of iron. But, this isn’t the case with MO Bacter.
Many people using moss killers complain that products can cause ugly stains to their paths and patios, and even garden furniture. This is down to the sulphate of iron contained in the products. As is free from this chemical, staining on hard surfaces won’t be an issue you’ll need to contend with.
No black, no mess
MO Bacter is an organic-based moss killer, which does not contain any chemicals, pesticides or sulphate of iron. Instead, this natural solution consists of a slow-release granular fertiliser. The moss in your garden will greedily eat the potash in the fertiliser, but because it has a low tolerance to the salts in this substance, the moss then perishes naturally. Thus, MO Bacter works indirectly to destroy moss, without it turning black or scorching the lawn. Instead, the moss will turn a gentle brown and then it will rapidly disappear, allowing the natural sward of your lawn to flourish.
Feed your lawn
The advantage of using a fertiliser-based moss killer that works by overfeeding the moss is that the rest of the grass benefits from the feed. MO Bacter can feed your lawn for around 100 days, allowing it to grow strong and healthy, filling those areas left behind by the perished moss.
Easy to use
If you’re put off using a moss killer as you haven’t got the time to be raking it out of the grass afterwards, the good news is that this isn’t something you need to worry about with MO Bacter. Thanks to the fact that the moss is consumed by safe bacteria within the product, or is naturally removed when the grass is mown, you can happily keep your rake in the shed or garage. This makes MO Bacter easy and convenient to use, even for the busiest of gardeners.
Plus, it can be used for many months throughout the year (except winter), with optimum results obtained when the temperature is above 12°C with active growth. You only have to wait just over a week to mow the lawn, and if you need to re-seed any bare patches, this can be done just four weeks after treatment.
As more of us turn to safe, chemical-free solutions when gardening, it’s reassuring to know that MO Bacter fits nicely into this category. As well as being safe for the garden, only targeting the moss, it won’t harm any other plants that it may come into contact with – in fact, it will assist to feed them! Plus, you can confidently add any mown grass clippings to your compost heap.
When applied correctly, MO Bacter is also safe to apply to lawns that are used by children or pets.
On top of its organic credentials, MO Bacter is CO2 neutral. This natural moss killer is produced by Viano Organics, which uses 2,300 solar panels on its factory roof, generating 550 megawatts of electricity every year.
Even better, MO Bacter gets the seal of approval from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), so if you want to make highly recommended, greener choices for your garden, you’re in good hands with this safe and natural moss killer.
