Thankyou to everyone for the great tips. I will try them out on the weekend!
Yes, definitely a power washer. It's more ENVIRONMENTAL, uses only your house water, you decide amount of pressure and at the same time it cleans the brick or stone, whichever stuff you have moss growing on/in. You can rent power washers, or ask a neighbor. Heck, he may even come over to show you how to use it, and have him clean it all while he's at it, if he has the time. It's worth the try! DEFINITELY A POWER WASHER! EARTH FRIENDLY! Oh before I forget again, it does a wonderful clean up on any grill! Gas, electric, charcoal. Almost as good as new when done. Anyone that doesn't have a Power Washer, should buy one. They are cheap enough now to afford one.
Bleach is your best option . I pour straight bleach on mine , let it stand for at least 30 mins. and lightly rinse down. The run off won't harm plants that are close. Salt will KILL plants (I killed a 40 yr. old bush with salt water).
Go to the Dollar Tree or any other places to by cheap laundry detergent. Sprinkle it liberally on the moss and mold, and in three to five days, it will start to turn brown. At that point, you can brush it off with a stiff push broom or a strong spray nozzle. I have done this for years, and it works. Also good for soaking up oil spills in garages, and smells better than cat litter.
Try renting a powerwasher. It uses just plain water from your hose so it's safe and gets the job done with minimal effort.
30 second outdoor cleaner. They sell it at Home depot and hardware stores it works like a charm!
I unfortunately am stuck with a brick pathway that goes some distance around and about my backyard. It gets covered in what I presume is a moss or mossy substance, making the walkway slick and dangerous. Can anyone provide a way to keep the moss from growing on the bricks, short of a blowtorch? I'm worried about slipping down myself, and certainly if I have guests or even the bug guy walking around.
