If you’re tired of looking at stubborn moss on your driveway, fear not, there is a solution. Moss on a driveway is a common issue, but it can make your property look untidy if left unaddressed. Fortunately, Daniel Scholfield, director of The Expert Gate Company, has shared a quick and easy hack to banish stubborn moss from your driveway. According to Scholfield, bleach is the best way to “kill moss on your driveway,” but it needs to be used at the right ratio. Scholfield recommends a ratio of five tablespoons of bleach to a gallon of water (roughly 3.7 litres) to prevent any discolouration on your driveway.
To give this a try, mix the solution in a bucket and then fill a spray bottle for easy distribution. Once the bottle is filled, spray the areas of the driveway that have been affected by moss. Make sure to evenly distribute the “moss killer solution” across all of the affected areas, to ensure that the solution will be “most effective”. Leave the bleach solution to soak on your driveway for around 15 minutes, giving the moss killer time to work its magic.
Not only is bleach effective at getting the job done, but it is also cost-effective too. If you haven’t got a bottle in your cupboard already, you can pick one up from Tesco and Asda for just 60p. However, it’s important not to leave the solution on for too long, as this may result in your driveway becoming stained. When it’s been 15 minutes, remove the bleach from treated areas using warm water and go over the area a few times to ensure that there is no bleach left behind.
Once the bleach is rinsed away, wait for a few hours for the solution to keep working. An indication that moss is dead is if it has turned a yellow colour. Once this happens, you can then move on to the next step, where you can finally remove the dead moss from your driveway. Use a stiff, hard-bristled brush to scrub all of the dead moss from your driveway. While it might take some elbow grease, the results are well worth it. With all of the moss removed, you’ll be left with a perfectly cleaned driveway that’ll look as good as new.
Overall, this method is a simple and cheap solution to remove stubborn moss from your driveway. It’s important to follow the instructions carefully to prevent any damage to your driveway. If you’re looking for an effective way to clean your driveway, give this method a try.
