How do I get rid of moss on DG path?
After a great rainy season, my DG paths are covered in moss and weeds. I have dogs who use these paths daily so I can spray with anything toxic. I don't want to wait until August when the sun has finally fried the plants. Any ideas?

Use white vinegar to kill the weeds. It won't harm the pets.
White vinegar is what i use. I have lots of pets too.
Hot water also works.
Salt is a great cheap weed killer. Pour it where the growth is, then wet it down with your hose, just enough that it dissolves and goes down to the root layer of the dirt. Dont overwater. Repeat after a serious rainfall, as the salt will have been washed down below the root line. You may have to repeat this every so often, depending on how wet your climate is.
