Hello and thanks for your question!

There are physical controls, and chemical controls. Only the physical controls are able to prevent moss growth in the future.

Physical controls: http://bryophytes.science.oregonstate.edu/page23.htm
Chemical controls: http://bryophytes.science.oregonstate.edu/page24.htm

After reading about your options, please feel free to reach out with follow-up questions. If you choose to use a pesticide (moss killer), be sure to read the label directions and follow them closely.

All the best, Kaci Buhl
