Moss is a stunning addition to any yard.  Let it climb up rocks or sweep across the lawn in place of grass.  The color is stunning and the texture delightful.

  • Moss is a simple plant.  An evergreen, its requirements are the same as evergreen plants.
  • Moss is a great alternative to the tyranny of lawns.
  • To establish moss in your yard, you need to do the prep work to make the environment hospitable for moss to flourish.
  • Make sure you have a level surface for moss to start growing.  Clear all vegetation, rocks, twigs and so forth to give moss a chance.
