A bleach solution will remove it. Here is an article to read. www.doityourself.com/.../206319-removing-algae-driveways.html...

Are you sure it is green mold? Most molds are black. If it is mold, use bleach solution. But often if on the ground and green, its a fine moss.

If it is a moss, you would use a product like roundup.

Mould is an alternate spelling for mold in the UK and other English speaking places in the world.

Stop! RoundUp is a carcinogen and has devasted ecosystems for pollinators. Big agriculture uses it to kill all unwanted plant life (weeds), including important plants like milkweed, the ONLY host plant for the Monarch butterfly, now an endangered species.

BAN ROUNDUP and use eco-friendly methods for getting rid of algae, moss, weeds, etc.

Roundup is a
Cancer causing poison. And when you use it you get in skin. And when on ground you drink it along with all of the filthy lawn fertilizers. #YUMMY

I think it is probably algae. Algae is green and slimy and likes to grow on wet areas like mold. I would make a dilute vinegar solution and spray it on the pavers.

The vinegar will also kill any weeds that want to grow in between the pavers.

White distilled vinegar would be my choice.

A great thing to use is a spray with half water, half white vinegar, and 20 drops tea tree oil. This mix will nix mold in all its forms. If you don't have the tea tree, that's OK.

When I have to remove green mold from my driveway, patio furniture, the siding of my home I use a pressure washer it works well with this issue. Makes my life so must easier.

I do agree the pressure washer is great on this sort of thing but my pavers are grey and I tried pressure washing them last year but it was taking the top layer off of them

Pressure washers work by removing the top layer of whatever you are spraying. The trick is to keep the spray at lease 6 inches from the surface, and use a light touch! Keep the wand moving, do not stay in one spot.

Also, you can use just plain water to spray with. You do not need fancy spray additives, they can add to the destruction if they contain caustic ingredients.

Be careful if you use a pressure washer on paving as it might blast the sand from the joints, leave a gap and then next year weeds will have a clear run. I use the bleach method and a stiff brush - it also beats a gym session!
