    you were not far off to be honest, what tends to happen is many use more water in a knapsack to penetrate the moss so the ratio is adjusted. Iron is not too bad when it comes to ratio and application. I should have worded my reply slightly different also as not to confuse the answer.

    What is this stuff growing in my "lawn"?

    Dutch hoe type method would this work. Keep chopping off any new growth and hopefully the plant will weaken and die. May be worth a try.
