Weed 'n' feed versus Lawn Sand

Can anyone give any advice as to which is better for the treatment of mainly moss build up but also other lawn weeds?

LAWN SAND IS GOOD AT SUPPRESSING MOSS BUT FIRSTLY, THE LAWN SHOULD BE SCARIFIED TO REMOVE AS MUCH OF THE MOSS AS POSSIBLE AND THEN AIRATED, SANDED AND RE-SEEDED.

IF YOU WANT QUICKER RESULTS THEN USE A MOSS KILLER BUT STILL BE PREPAIRED TO RAKE OUT/SCARIFY THE LAWN TO GET RID OF DEAD MOSS AND POSSIBLY RE-SEED LAWN.

USING A MULTI-PURPOSE WEED/FEED/MOSS KILLER CAN SHOW GOOD RESULTS PARTICULARLY IF MORE THAN ONE APPLICATION IS MADE DURING THE GROWING SEASON ( AND WILL HELP TO KILL OFF THE PERENIAL WEEDS TOO) FOLLOWED BY AN AUTUMN LAWN TREATMENT WHEN GRASS IS BECOMING SLOW TO GROW TO PROVIDE FOR GOOD GRASS ROOTS WHICH WILL ALL MAKE FOR A HEALTHIER GREENER LAWN THE FOLLOWING SPRING.

cheers ALDA

I've scarified and airated so plan to apply some sand to aid drainage and then weed n feed now and again at the end of the summer.

Hopefully i'll have something like wembley by next summer :wink:
