I need a little “green” help today, and I know one of you will have an idea that will help.
Here’s my problem. Moss.
I love a mossy pathway, or even moss on the base of a tree, but not growing up the side of my home.
When I moved into my apartment a year ago May (hard to believe it hasn’t been much longer than that) there was moss growing up the entire portion of the brick wall outside my door. It covered an area that is almost 20 feet long.
I was sure I could end the problem. I scraped the moss off as best as I could then sprayed the wall with white vinegar soaking it.
The moss stayed away all summer, I thought I was pretty smart. But now that the rains have returned so has the moss.
So what do you do to remove moss from a brick wall and keep it from returning. I don’t use any chemicals and would rather scrape each year if that’s what it took. We are expecting 70 degree temps Wednesday so I plan to finish up the fall work on the garden and seating area, including planting some bulbs for spring, and would like to attack this problem once and for all.
So anyone who has dealt with a moss problem I’d love to hear from you.
