How to remove patio moss from driveway without a pressure washer ‘very easily’
If the conditions are right, moss can grow anywhere. The spores are always in the air, so as long as there is enough light, moisture and nutrition, moss will grow and thrive.
Moss can cover almost any surface, including the lawn, roof, walls, driveway, sidewalk and decking.
Removing moss from patio driveways is a daunting task, but not impossible.
There are several different methods that families can try, depending on the severity of the moss problem and the surface of the moss.
But when it comes to the most effective method, the experts at Green Acre Landscape claimed that there is one household item that proves to be the “best” – and that is bleach.
The experts said: “Bleach is the best solution for removing moss from the driveway.
“You just have to make sure you use the chemical carefully as it can stain the pavement or kill the surrounding plants.”
To use bleach to kill moss, mix about 600ml of bleach with 4.5 liters of water and pour the mixture into a garden sprayer.
Experts recommend letting the bleach sit for 15 minutes before washing it off with warm water.
They said: “The moss should die and turn yellow in a few hours. At this point, it will be very easy to remove with a broom or brush.”
Many households will already have a bottle of bleach, but if not, it can be bought from local supermarkets such as Tesco for 60p and Asda and Sainsbury’s for 70p.
Bleach can also be used to remove moss from brick surfaces as well. Brick surfaces are very porous and retain a lot of moisture, which can facilitate moss growth.
If gardeners don’t want to use bleach, they can use white vinegar though. Just mix equal parts vinegar with water and load it into the sprayer.
Spray the solution on the affected area and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off. The experts said: “The moss should die within a few hours and you can easily remove it with a scrub.”
The expert also shared how to remove moss from lawns. They claimed that while moss “doesn’t really harm the grass”, it can “restrain growth”.
The “best way” to eliminate moss is to correct the conditions and make sure the soil has a better pH, is loose, and has more sunlight.
Once gardeners correct the conditions, they can simply use a rake or a dethatching blade to remove all the moss.
