An inexpensive paintbrush;

Start by removing larger clumps of moss and algae by using a paint stripping knife, then use a stiff brush to remove any remaining growth.

Dilute the fungicide according to the instructions and paint it onto the wall.  Don't be stingy with the amount - coat it iberally.
