    hi guys could someone tell me a chemically which can be easily purchased to help in killing off moss on monoblock? No plots are near by so I'm not limited to a selective im just wondering if Round up will aid in this as I use this for weed control.

    Though I don't know what monoblock is, I do know that Roundup (Glyphosate) is ineffective in killing moss.

    Great at giving you cancer and destroying the Pollinator species, though!

    Moss thrives in low light and moist conditions, take those two things away and suprise! No more moss. You don't need chemicals, they are a *quick fix* that only makes the problem worse in every facet.

    Glyphosate should be illegal and anyone who supports it should be imprisoned for crimes against life.

    Hmm. We try to be welcoming of all those who are interested in plants on these forums. The latter part of your statement is unwelcoming.

    There is a once a year non herbicide treatment that is fantastic on moss called Foamstream

    Why don't you just use the inexpensive Zinc liquids sold for roof moss control? I don't think it stains. Its not like Iron used on lawns. But the roof product is easy to apply with a sprayer. Fast, easy and light weight.

    Probably $10 to $20 per gallon max.

    Foamstream is neither is a hot water and foam solution. The foaming solution
    Is made from natural and sustainable plant oils and sugars and disappears quickly leaving behind no residue
