For Growing Containers and Hardened Bark of Trees:
Spray affected area to wet thoroughly. Use on ornamental trees only. DO NOT APPLY to fruit trees, foliage or green bark of conifers or broad leaf plants.
For Mosses in Lawns and Turf:
For best results, moisten area to be treated with fresh water before applying product. Avoid spraying when precipitation is expected. Spray affected area thoroughly at the rate of approximately 1 gallon per 50 square feet. After 30 minutes, rinse sprayed areas lightly with clean water, then withhold water for two days. Do not treat turf when temperature exceeds 85°F.
PERSISTENT MOSS GROWTH ON LAWNS is symptomatic of too much shade, acid soil, and poor drainage. If several sprayings do not reduce moss problem it may be necessary to reduce shade, aerate and lime the soil.
