Removing moss on the terrace and sidewalk - 5 tips


Removing moss on the terrace or sidewalk is a job that should be done before winter. Here are 5 tips on how to do it the easiest.

Moss spreads in all joints

Moss annoyingly grows between pavement slabs and in the joints on the terrace. That looks ugly and is also not particularly good for the stones or the terrace covering. Moss should be removed before winter. We have put together four tips for you here on how to remove moss or other greenery on the terrace or sidewalk.

Tip 1 - the joint scraper


The joint scraper is a popular tool for removing moss between pavement slabs. However, you need a lot of muscle power here, because the steel blade is not easy to move between the plates. However, the root can also be removed immediately. A little tip: attach a long handle to the blade, which relieves the back and makes work easier.

Tip 2 - brush or broom


Even with hard brushes, the moss can be removed and the joints removed from weeds. The wide brushes can be powered electrically or used normally with muscle power. This method is a bit tedious, but it works.

Tip 3 - the gas burner


Flames are also effective against weeds. The weeds are first burned by the gas burner and then simply swept away. However, work carefully so that plants that grow nearby are not damaged.
