Due to the wet winters we are having my garden soil is covered in moss, even in my south facing back garden - I am thinking of replacing some areas with gravel or would forest bark be better? Any suggestions?

Problem with moss on soil in flower beds.



I too suffer from moss, I intend to make my borders bigger (digging up the area of moss) and try and make the drainaige better by forking all over the lawn and then brushing some fine sand into the holes.

Scarifying the lawn and using the moss to decorate some pots with bulbs in them.

Yes, I've got moss this year as well. I am trying to remove it, and dig in horticultural grit everywhere I can, to improve the drainage.
