Green attack – how to deal with it
Green Rash –
It seems to be getting worse this year, the green deposits. In one way or another, the autumn weather has caused quite a lot of deposits on terraces, garden furniture, etc.
Green deposits are often a bothersome and sometimes dangerous problem in the garden. How do you solve it?
Solution for green deposits
Green deposits on paths and patios can be unsightly and often dangerously slippery. Garden furniture is no longer suitable for sitting on after the winter. But wooden decks and terraces in particular are treacherously slippery. In rainy weather, you can easily slip.
I usually wait until after the winter. Then, in early spring, we tackle the problem.
And the fewer tiles, the fewer green deposits, of course. A garden with plants often requires less work than a terrace full of green tiles.

And regularly sweeping your pavement prevents seeds from germinating between your tiles.
How to tackle green deposits
There are various options, such as cleaning vinegar, road salt, green soap, etc. Often, not all of them are approved for use on tiles or stones. They are bad because they can get into surface water and affect trees and plants. These chemical agents are also not at all safe for pets.
