My sidewalk is on the NE side of the house going beside a garage, which blocks the sun much of the day, to the front door.

    are you asking about a cleaning solution or a way of brightening up the space?

    vinegar solutions usually work to keep moss of sidewalks that aren't getting enough sun to not turn green and dingy.

    Have you considered stamping the area? A gorgeous way to protect it and it adds to your great yard. I know, you were asking for a solution. Maybe this is just a solution of a different kind! (trying to be funny... )

      I like mossy growth on sidewalks, it gives them patina. But unfortunatley slippery when wet. (Our experience in the tropics with moss/mold =)The only real solution is clorox and a stiff brush and/or and/or powerwash. (There is no 'coating' you can give it to prevent the growth.) Your idea of stamping could leave the patina on the lower spots if you keep the upper clean, thus a nice effect.

    I'm having estimates done on my concrete as I type. The last one is my neighbor two doors down today who does stamping for a living. I will ask him. Is there anything else I can ask in the meantime? Between us, I know stamping can be done without a contractor (but I need a contractor as I have to have a total tear-out and concrete is crumbling after 12 yrs. )... and the original owners of my house stamped my concrete family room! I love it!

    Nothing I can think of, Seethebeauty. Surely a glaze for sealing would, st least, reduce staining and mold. Thank you.
