Keep your Block Paving Moss and Algae Free
If you are looking to treat the moss on your block paving, and are generally trying to improve the overall look of your driveway or patio, it is best to accept that a few simple maintenance procedures, maybe twice a year are required.
The key thing is to stop the bevelled edges between the blocks filling up with muck. If this not removed periodically with a stiff broom it will readily attract moss growth. We have a recommended approach to keeping your block paving moss and algae free. Firstly, apply a liberal application of our Moss Clear product. Depending when you want results, just dilute the product accordingly for how much moss is present. Using it for patios or block paving, apply at a dilution rate of 5 to 1. This will lead to the moss starting to die off within a few days. For real intense ‘carpets of moss’ or for quicker results, apply at a 3 to 1 dilution rate.
For best results, apply the Moss clear when the moss is as dry as possible. This is because when dry, the moss will absorb the product readily into its roots structure and will be far more effective. After application, If you do nothing, the moss will die off and go brown and rain will simply wash it away over time. To ensure the block paving is clean, simply sweep the surface just a few days after application.
