    Hello. I was just wondering if anybody has an idea of how to hide this unsightly moss/gunk that builds up every time it rains. I clean it regularly however when it rains it just builds up again and goes onto my paving also. Neighbour had it power hosed the other day so all the crap comes into mine. No point in a wooden frame of some kind as I have already put some fence panels up but the moss is starting to penetrate that now. Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance.

    "wet and forget" will kill it and prevent regrowth for a while. There's usually a discount or special offer on their website. If not, come back and I may have a code I can message to you. A container lasts a long time because you dilute it in water.

    the problem is excessive damp. Life will grow on any surface that supports it, and a damp surface is hospitable to life. I assume that area gets no sun. Sometimes, putting more of a fall on the surface, so rain runs off and it dries quicker, will do the trick, or providing some kind of gutter for drainage.

    The timber can be treated with a wood preserver in summer, when it is fully dry.
