    I've just had a major power washing project as I had moss in the paving and nothing I tried got rid of it.

    Power washing done, let it, dry out for a day or two

    Up the builders yard for a bag of Kiln dried sand, brushed that in, job done

    I can do this, I will do this...

    Sodium percarbonate. Chuck the granules on, it will stop it returning too. 100%.

    There's a product called Wet&Forget that is safe to use and biodegradable.

    Yes they do work.
    Sprinkle them on the moss then wait for it to rain or water them in with a watering can.

    2 large mugs of white vinegar in a gallon of water, and a good squirt of washing up liquid, water over the path. Will kill the moss, and anything else.
    My Mind wanders, if found please return.
