    Hi everyone

    Does anyone know the easiest way to get rid of the green staining - possibly algae (I can't think it's moss) that has begun to spoil gates and posts?

    We also have a deck, which - although doesn't look green, it has become very slippery and I think this might be algae too.

    I would be grateful for any suggestions on removal of both problems.
    Thanks :confused:
