Callum Haughn (@haughnturf on Twitter) shared this image of moss on a back tee in the spring on a golf course in eastern Canada. He wrote: "Great illustration of how moss thrives without traffic. The more decks you move up, the less the moss."

Turfgrass can persist under an amount of traffic that suppresses moss. One of our recommended controls for moss is to increase the traffic on the moss-affected areas. For more, see our reference on moss.
