Moss Terminator: Moss & Algae Remover and Inhibitor is a fast and effective way of getting rid of nightmare moss in your garden. Having supplied it to hundreds of happy customers over the years I thought it was high time I put together a definitive guide showing just how effective it is. Here you'll find a step by step guide showing how to mix and apply Moss Terminator for the effective removal of moss. I'll follow up with a progress report on how it's handling the moss on my property.

Apply moss termanator when you have, or are expecting, a bad infestation of moss, algae, fungus, liverwort etc.
Ideally wait for a dry day when it hasn't rained in the last 24 hours and you aren't expecting rain for a further 24 hours.
A watering can or hand pump sprayer and a stiff brush to sweep up dead moss later.
Roughly 1 litre of Moss Terminator per 18m2 of surface.
My home exterior is almost entirely brick, front and back. Moss, weeds and other green stuff are a constant problem in the spring and summer, getting between the cracks and quickly growning out of control. With this much brick I've got a lot of area to cover. Despite this I've gone for a single 5 litre container of Moss Terminator: Moss & Algae Remover.
A 5 litre container mixed and sprayed the way I will show you should cover roughly 80-90m2 so I should be able treat my whole property with around 1.5 to 2 litres left over for later!
The moss on the front of my house is especially bad so I'm going need to mix a strong formula. I'm going straight for the recommended maximum of 1:4. Thats 1 part Moss Terminator to 4 parts water.
First I add 1 litre of moss terminator to my tank. You'll see here I'm using a hand pump pressure sprayer but a napsack sprayer or regular garden watering can will do the job just as well.
I then add 4 litres of cold water from the tap
To apply simply spray or pour on to the area you'd like to treat. Pay extra attention to those areas where moss is already thick as these are likely to be your trouble spots.
You should try to apply the Moss Terminator solution at a rate of 3-4m2 per litre of the solution. It is easy to apply an even coat with a sprayer such as the one I am using but a watering can should be just as easy.
Notice that I am spraying lots of weeds as well as the moss. I must stress that Moss Terminator is not a weed killer. There's no gaurantee it will have any effect on the weeds. For the sake of the experiment however I'm going to apply it to all the green stuff I can find and see how it performs
Once you've treated the area with Moss Terminator it will take 2-3 days to take effect. You can see on the image on the right that within a few minutes the moss terminator has already started to dry into the brick, hence the light and dark patches.
As the formula takes effect the moss will brown and dry out as it dies making it brittle and easy to sweep away with a stiff brush. The weeds may require treatment with a dedicated weed killer but let's see how things go with just the Moss Terminator.
It's been 24 hours and we are already starting to see the effect. The moss has turned from a vibrant green to an unhealthy brown, barely visible against the red brick. The weeds are also in a sorry state; leaves browning up and starting to sag!
3 days after spraying Moss Terminator and the effects are clear. Its disapeared in alot of places without any interference. Any still visible is brown, brittle and comes off easily with the brush. Same is true for the weeds which are dead, srivelled and wouldn't stand up to a stiff breeze!
I must point out once again that this is not a weed killer. While applying Moss Terminator has done a great job in this case we can't gaurantee it will work on all weeds in all cases. On Moss, Algae, Liverwort and fungus however Moss Terminator is a very effective removal solution!
