How do I get rid of established moss in my lawn?

There are products now included in most major brand lawn product lines for moss control.Scott's Moss Control comes to mind but there are others.Moss is a product of acidic soil and the old standby for this is lime.Generally it is applied at one bag per 1000 sq. feet and is available in several different forms.The pelleted or granular forms are easier handled than powdered.If your moss situation is particularly heavy it may take several applications over time to deal with it.You can apply lime most any time of year but generally do not apply it either a month or less before you plan to fertilize of a month or less after you have applied fertilizer.These tend to counteract each other.I have often known of people applying them together and even heard employees of various stores suggest it or at least not discouraging it.This is a mistake.
