Cleaning artificial/net wickets
« on: April 05, 2016, 08:41:16 PM »

Exciting topic this   ;)

Our practice/artificial wicket is very wet and mossy after this winter.  Anyone got any tips on the best way to get rid of the moss?  Is it purely a good brushing or should I use some moss-killer first?

Thanks

I personally would just brush it, not sure what chemicals can damage the matting

Strimmer at an angle hitting against it. Discussed a fair bit on pitch care if you do a search on there!

Pressure wash or use the scarifier with the brush attachment. Ours is awful and is too far away from any plugs to pressure wash. The Scarifier does an ok job but really a pressure washer would sort it out.
