Live Moss

Moss can be added to any garden to create an attractive, healthy bottom layer. It can build a more natural feel into a rock garden, add a counterpoint to a flower garden, or even form its whimsical moss garden, states Tammy Sons from Tn Nursery, a leading moss suppier from Tennessee. There are different types of moss which can be added to the garden, and you can also buy moss in an online plant nursery.

The moss garden should start free of competing for plant life, such as grass, and smooth enough that the low-lying moss bed can spread quickly. If you wish to combine moss with perennials or other features, add those first before planting the live moss. Finally, it is important to remember that moss grows very slowly. If you have a large area, buy a lot of moss to cover it, do not expect it to grow and take over quickly. Sheet moss and carpet moss sell by the square footage in places such as an online plant nursery or a local gardening store.

When it is finished, a live moss garden looks natural and beautiful. A simple layer of sheet moss will mingle easily with artificial garden features too, so you can be as creative as your imagination and budget allow. When planted in the garden, it forms a thick carpet-like texture, with a smooth surface and only medium growth. Since it can cover soil, wood, or even rock, arrange those artfully across the garden and allow the live moss to create a lighter appearance of untrammeled wilderness without the bother of thick weeds and heavy trees. Whether you use carpet moss or sheet moss, the results will be beautiful between the preparation work.

Add to your garden with moss

Sphagnum moss, or peat moss, is often added to gardens without becoming the garden’s centerpiece. It has many properties which enhance an existing garden, such as gradually enabling the release of water or fertilizer to the other plants, allowing them to thrive on less of both. It also functions to improve soil type. Heavy clay soil is loosened to aid root growth, while the sandy soil is given extra body to help the soil maintain nutrients and water. Sphagnum moss also speeds up composting by helping break down organic matter, and its decay is very slow, so it becomes an appropriate growth medium for other plants.

When you buy moss for your garden, you are making the right choice.
