How do I clean moss from patio pavers? How do I clean moss from patio pavers?

There are a couple of ways to clean moss from patio pavers. One is more labor intensive, while the other requires a piece of specialized equipment. Moss, too, may be more or less difficult to clean. Thick, overgrown moss is quickly scraped or washed off, while the scummy residue it leaves behind takes more time.

Cleaning Moss

The labor-intensive method for cleaning moss off of patio pavers involves scraping. A flat-bottom spade allows you to stand up and do it. Otherwise, it means kneeling down to do the job. The faster method requires either a full-scale pressure washer or a pressure-washing attachment for a standard garden hose. While this requires slowly passing over moss scum, it does the trick, all without resorting to chemicals.
