    I started a compost using materials I have discovered are okay. Problem is I also put in some moss from the yard that was treated (turned black & brown). Will this ruin my compost or is there something I can add to fix it?

    I'm not sure, but I'd probably pick it out as I saw it and throw it in the garbage.

    Moss killer dissapates quickly and doesn't kill grass or broadleaf weeds. If you want to go organic, make peace with your mossy lawn :). A dose of dolomitic limestone 2 times a year over several years will alter the ph of your lawn and sweeten it so that the moss will go away.
