    Allergy Control Priducts
    carries a great product called
    Vital Oxide which can be used as a spray or in other ways. Kills lots of bacteria, molds virii.
    Or use a solution of chlorine bleach and water but it's nor environmentally healthy. Don't know if non chlorine powdered bleach in solution. With water would kill.molds..vital oxide lasts a long run goes a long way.
    I use it on house interior and exterior.

    It looks like moss, not mold, from your picture. Moss grows in moist, shaded areas. If you can trim trees to let sun in, that would be an easy fix. Find out where the water is coming from and develop a way for it to drain away from your yard (french drains, building up one side of the yard and directing water towards the lower part).

    Lime will do it, also great for snakes, they do not like to cross it.

    Rock Salt for home made ice cream will kill grass, weeds, etc. apply in summer when hot. Your picture, I would put medium, small white rocks up against the house as a path.

    I agree with Jennifer, that looks like moss. Some additional ideas to add to hers: Rake the moss and top layer of soil off and dispose of it. If the moss is partially caused by excess moisture in the soil, see what you can do to improve drainage. It may be as simple as just adding some sand to the soil and roto-tilling it deeply into existing soil (after moss is removed), to increase drainage. Reseed if you want to try and regrow grass, lay sod, or consider planting shade-loving plants. Los of information and ideas here: https://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Moss-in-Your-Lawn

    That is moss, not mold. Many people love moss (I am one of them!). Moss is used to accent many plantings. But, even lovers of moss want it where they want it. Getting rid of it isn't hard - there's nothing toxic there. First decide if you want to grow anything else there. Any chlorine or salt products will kill ANYTHING growing there. If you plan to replant the area, just pull it out using a flat shovel or even a little hand gardening tool (Depends on how much is there).

      If you go online, you will find websites that sell mosses and design ideas using moss. There are so many varieties of moss to choose from. If moss grows well there, I would consider using it, at least as an accent planting. You will be surprised to see the options out there. But, if you still want to get rid of the moss and plant something else, you can find some great tips on that too (Like change the ph of the soil). Good luck!

    Before I knew about Lime, I planted monkey grass in a large area which covered the area.
