Green on fences

Old fence panels and shed are getting green showing through fence paint.   What is the best way to deal with it?

    Wire brush and re-paint.  My OH would insist that I wear a face mask while I wire brush it down.

    Got face mask, can't remember seeing wire brush since I moved.   May have to nip out for one.  Will give that method a try.

    Having tried both ways I'd say it comes off much more easily when it's wet. Wait till it's rained or wet it first and then use a scrubbing brush and a bucket of water. It will be messy but you won't need the face mask. Almost fun on a hot day!
