Adding moss to compost

I'm about to rake out some of the moss in the lawn. Is it OK to add the moss to the compost?

Re: Adding moss to compost

fine, provided you havnt treated it first with any chemicals, also make sure you mix it well with course material, just putting it in a lump on the compost, it will not break down.
