What is this stuff growing on my stones?

Click for full size
Anybody knows how to get rid of this? Looks like mold or mushrooms or something growing on stones next to a house.

Lichens. People pay extra to have that on their stones. Why would you want to get rid of it?

They will think you are rich and put in fancy rocks.

They will be more upset about your poor mowing and edging skills

Wow I could never live in a place with a HOA, especially if they were that anal.

As with others I would leave it be, it gives it character.

Don't try to edge between the rocks -- it will just create erosion. I think what you have now looks really nice.

They're not going to like that you bleached your grass... Better get some spray paint and at least make an attempt to have green grass.

I have seen painted Bermuda grass lawns in the winter.

Some are. Many aren't. My HOA handles snow removal when it snows more than 3", mowing the grass in the common area/park, street lights in the neighborhood, and signage. The city's neighborhood code enforcement handles grass that hasn't been mowed and they don't cite houses unless it's at least 6", if not 8" long.

For everything else the HOA basically minds their own business, the way it's suppose to be.

Weed Whacker to trim it up, hand sheers, shovel, small children... whatever you can find.

Rocks, with lichens. People actually pay big money to have rocks like that moved to their property and used as landscaping.

It's harmless and actually considered aesthetically pleasing.

Just set the grass on fire. That will naturally edge it for you.

Some (most) HOA do not allow burning of grass.
Not as much any more but it was quite common to burn off the dead bermuda lawn in the winter to dethatch them in AZ.

Some people will scrape that lichen off and mix it with egg white and then paint it all over the rock to get the lichen to spread.
