The Q&A Archives: moss on brick patio

Question: How to get rid of moss on crevices of brick patio?

Answer: Moss likes a moist, acid, shady environment. You could try ground limestone applied to the area several times in one growing season. A flame thrower could be used to burn off the moss and the application of limestone would eliminate the slipperiness while raising the pH, which would discourage the moss from growing back.
