The ideal place for moss to grow is in our front garden, north
facing , sheltered and on slabs. I want to get rid of it and prevent
further growth. I can scrape some off, spray moss killer on the rest,
but, how do I prevent it from returning ?
Dig out and spray with weed killer. As long as you can get most of the
green off to start with, then a spray with weed killer should keep it at bay
for a good long while. There are no fast and sure ways to prevent wind sewn
seed from getting into cracks and crevices, so regular maintenance is always
needed on these types of things.
Good luck with it.
That name's a 'blast from the past', have you come out of retirement 'cause
you're a little bored just lazin' about there?
If it's the genuine BW, then welcome back - if it's a new BW, then you have
a fair old mantle to carry! :-)
It's the same old me, Brian. :-) Been busy for some months, but thought
I'd take a break from the humdrum and spread my worth into the groups again.
How's you been, while I've been gone? No one lost life or limb on their
home grown projects?
To answer the OP,
My own experience with moss on slabs is that it just won't lay down and die,
no matter what chemical is used. As a result, I simply power wash the patio
twice or three times a year simply to keep it under control.
