Make a Garden Statement with Moss

Landscaping with moss can liven up any garden or landscaping. Many people use moss as an alternative to grass for its low maintenance and beauty. Live moss is small, and the soft plant is typically about 1-10cm (.4-4 inches) tall and commonly grows close together in clumps in damp or shady locations (medium dense. However, the Lawsonia is the tallest moss in the world (about 50cm tall).

Tennessee Wholesale Nursery sells many different types of moss. Here are some examples and some information on them:

Hypnum moss (sheet moss):

- typically found in all continents except Antarctica

- small to medium in size (2-10cm long)

- it looks like a Cyprus tree

- grows on tree trunks, logs, walls, and rocks

Sphagnum moss:

- commonly called peat moss

- wet habitats (grow more in wet areas)

- living and dead plants can hold large quantities of water

- under the right conditions, it can grow many meters

Topiary moss:

- the practice of training live perennial plants by clipping them into various shapes and angles.

- also known as living sculptures

- sometimes, wired cages are used to help guide the shears used by the artist

- generally, evergreens are used because they are small, woody plants that produce dense foliage and have fast-growth habits

- Many the tourist attractions like Disney World and Epcot Center have topiary plants on display to help attract people to their parks.

There are many other types of moss to choose from. You can check out the Tennessee Tree Nursery's website, or better yet, stop in and check out the different types of moss.

Landscaping with moss has been gaining popularity over the last few years due to economic problems and water scarcity. Many people prefer to encourage moss growth rather than eliminate them by using harmful chemicals. Live moss has many perks.

* grows fast and prevents erosion (wearing away of the earth's surface by water, ice, and wind)

* virtually no maintenance (no need to worry about when you need to mow your lawn!)

* grows thick and lush (once it's been established)

* repels weeds

* doesn't need fertilizer or much water, thus substantially saving money on water and the need for harmful chemicals.

* no pests or little to no diseases

Grow moss in shady areas; there are four factors to do so effectively:

* must have enough moisture in the area (keep the area moist at all times for the first few weeks after transplanting)

* enough shade (medium to dense shading is preferred)

* humidity (difficult to control...misting kits will help check out the website about the kits or visit the store and ask a sales associate)

* soil type/PH balance (prefer to grow on firmly packed acidic soils with PH balances between 5.0 and 5.5)

Sheet Moss - TN Nursery

Sheet Moss

Sheet Moss is a lush, low-growing species that forms a dense carpet of soft, emerald-green foliage, often used in terrariums, floral arrangements, and as a ground cover in shaded areas. Sheet Moss is one of the most favored kinds of type that is used for lawns. It’s so named because it creates a ‘sheet’ over a garden or forest floor. Beyond the luxurious and welcoming appearance and vibe of this dense sheet, it also serves as the protecting home for a variety of microfauna, including frogs, spiders, and insects. Many small ecosystems revolve around the layers of it on the forest floor, and gardeners who are seeking to add more biodiversity to their gardens should consider adding it to the ground of their gardens. Where Does Sheet Moss Grow Officially known as Hypnum curvifolium, it is a wide-ranging plant that is found on every continent except for Antarctica. It’s mostly found in temperature regions of the world and adapts well to moist areas. You’ll commonly see it underneath logs or rocks, around tree trunks, or near natural sources of water. In gardens, you’ll usually find it around clay pots, stones, or next to artificial ponds. Description of Sheet Moss It is most notable for its soft fronds that collectively form a thick carpet of green over a forest floor. The individual leaves are very small and overlap a bit over one another, which helps to create the plant’s soft and lavish texture and appearance. Laying down over it will be akin to laying down over nature’s version of a mattress. While the leaves are normally a bright green, they will also develop a slight but noticeable yellow tint when moisture levels deplete a bit or are under prolonged exposure to sunlight. Why is Sheet Moss A Good Choice For Gardeners Gardeners like it because of how adaptable it is. It can easily retain moisture to help hydrate the soil underneath it and prevent erosion. People will often add it to gardens as well as terrariums to help create an atmosphere that is equally as lush as it is inviting. It is also very low maintenance and requires minimal pruning and watering. Many gardeners who want to create a green covering over the ground will turn to it over grass for this reason. It’s a suitable choice both for experienced gardeners and those who are new to the hobby. Grass is the traditional go-to for groundcover, but one shouldn't put Sheet Moss out of their mind. Certain varieties, like this type, form a lush sheet of green over the surface it inhabits. But much like any other plant, the reasons to grow this type of ground cover go far beyond just what it has to offer aesthetically. Here's how this plant can benefit and enhance your landscape with ease. Sheet Moss Defends Your Soil Against Erosion and Flooding Are you looking for ground cover that grows better in your region and offers benefits for the surrounding environment? If so, this plant is an excellent choice. While it doesn't have a root system, it's still an excellent plant that can defend against soil erosion and serve to better control the flow of water, leading to less flooding if you live in an area that experiences a lot of rain or a few unpredictable showers here and there during the winter and spring seasons. Sheet Moss Offers Many Benefits for Other Plants in Your Garden That Love Moisture This type of plant loves moisture, which is why it's often recommended for regions where grass can't easily thrive. However, you can go a step beyond that and grow plants that also love moisture on top of this plant as it serves to retain moisture that your other plants will rely on to grow strong. You can even add it to potted plants for this purpose as well as to improve the aesthetics of items like bonsai trees. Sheet Moss Variety Tolerates a Range of Condition As we just touched upon, this plant loves moisture, but that doesn't mean that it can't hold up against conditions that might threaten the lives of other varieties. In comparison, this variety is actually hardier, making it easier to keep alive once you spread it across your landscape. If you're looking for ground cover that enhances your space and will hold up over time, this is the one to choose. Sheet Moss Looks Great Year-Round You want your yard to look as lush and as vibrant as possible throughout the year, and this form of groundcover can help you achieve exactly that. With proper care and maintenance, you're sure to enjoy what this plant has to offer for your space.
