Moss is a plant with shallow roots that is propagated by spores and structures of the root, called rhizoids. It is fun to grow during the gray and damp days of late fall and early spring.

If you do mossy grass problems and fill in the holes, it is a good indication that you have a deeper problem – soil compacting, poor drainage, low soil pH or not enough sunlight.
