    I got good control of moss with an iron solution--iron sulfate. I used a heavy rate, about 8 ounces per thousand sqft. It turned the moss black.
    Unfortunately, it did not affect some kind of simple plant--maybe a bryophyte--light green wrinkled circles. This was also affecting my garden.

    Actually the round light green simple plant is turning brown. It is likely the iron is killing it--but rather slowly.
