|Power washing or scrubbing with a stiff brush will remove the mildew but it will return as long as the concrete remains wet or gets wet on a daily basis. About the only way to stop it is to put trays beneath your plants so the excess water doesn't run out onto the cement. Wish there were a permanent solution!
