    37B9D47F-76DD-4DD1-9A46-D34C128FA16B.jpeg we have a back lawn with some dead grass and bit of moss.

    Is it good time to rack? Or should I wait for next year.


    There is little bit moss as well? Is there any treatment available to kill moss in autumn?

    Thanks

    Looks like your grass has suffered a bit in the heat this year @Mane . It wouldn`t hurt to give it a bit of a rake, to get the moss out - then I reckon you might just need to leave it alone to recover as it will when it gets some more rain. Next year when it starts growing again, it would be best if you don`t cut it so short.

    If you live in the South and get the mild weather I would go for it. Scarify,sowing new seed thats suited to the site,sun shade etc etc.

    If your in the midlands or North Id leave it till Spring now. ALL imho.
