Show the moss who's boss! I have been doing this for years and I guarantee it works. If you have moss on the walks around your home, you know it's dangerous for falls when wet and unsightly. Go to the local dollar store and get powdered laundry detergent. Sprinkle it on like you would Parmesan cheese on spaghetti - nice and thick.
Within days, the moss will be brown and easy to remove. Once removed, you can keep a little bit of detergent on it for "return control", but keep in mind that too much while it's raining will cause more slippery surfaces, defeating the purpose.
I hope this helps!
