Damp/wet, shady, conditions will cause moss to grow.

I also have moss. Moss likes acidic soil, shade, and dampness. Be careful to check your roof as it can cause damage to your roof if it is growing there.

I am trying to cut dowm some trees and low growing branches to allow more sun into my yard as a remedy for this. For you, it may help to add lime to your soil.
