The Q&A Archives: brick patio!

Question: Hi! I have a brick patio out back with grasses and violets and container plants....T he question is, the brick has algee and green on it and I wants to use a solution of maybe tide anda little bleach to scub that off, will that kill the plants around it and the grass? What do you suggest that will get that off easyly with out harming the grass and to get the patio shining?????????

Answer: Bleach and detergent can both harm your plants so I'd suggest using a friendlier cleaner such as Simple Green. It will remove the moss and algae (use a scrub brush) and when you rinse it off it won't harm your plants.
