St. Gabriel Moss Killer is made from plant oils. It safely removes moss build-up on brick patios, concrete sidewalks, slate and more.
Moss growth can occur in nearly any location where dampness persists. In areas shaded by trees, buildings and awnings, on decks, steps, patios and fences. Moisture is essential for moss growth, therefore, most moss growth appears during the fall and spring. Some occurs in the winter in some parts of the country or during warm winters in the north.
Controlling moss may add months or years of service to decks, fences, steps and bricked areas, and can keep walkways and steps from becoming slippery and dangerous. Destroying existing moss is done most effectively during times when its growth is most rapid and when rain is not expected for several days.

- acid soil - add lime
- alkaline soil - add elemental sulphur or Natural Up
- low fertility - Add Fertilizer or Compost

- Poor drainage providing moisture to support moss growth - change the grade and/or add drainage stone and tile of necessary
