Hard surface moss control: when to do it and how long it takes

Have you got a slippery moss problem? We’ll show you why January is the perfect month to deal with moss on your driveway, patios and side passages.

January: the perfect month for moss control

If you haven’t already dealt with this year’s build-up of moss on your patio or driveway, then January is the perfect time of year to do so. The early evenings help keep visitors’ attention off any unsightly moss die-back, and by controlling your moss in January you get to welcome spring with clean, bright and safe pavements.

The dangers of patio moss

Few garden mosses pose a health risk until the dead of winter. As temperatures dip, any rainwater held in the spongy structure of driveway moss can freeze over, forming slippery bumps on the pavement around your home. January’s dark evenings make it almost impossible to spot these dangerous icy patches until it’s too late; if you’re not careful, a trip to the recycling bin can land you in hospital.

How to control driveway moss

You can’t kill moss permanently, but you can control it. Moss spores are in the air all around us, and moss will take hold just about anywhere on your property if the conditions are right. While there’s no real way to kill moss forever, it can be controlled with professional products. At Lawnkeeper, we use specific moss control treatments and professional-grade equipment to get the job done. Find out more here.
