Thank you for your question to Ask the Expert.

The best way to remove moss is to remove it my hand or potentially by pressure washing. Here is more information on techniques: http://bryophytes.science.oregonstate.edu/page23.htm

The chemical control options will also kill the Irish Moss, so this method will not work well for your situation and, in general, chemical control is less preferable for environmental reasons.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
