I have a new project at a modern home built on a huge outcrop of Puddingstone. The property is so unique and interesting and the landscape that we are developing will hopefully be the same. Because there is really little dirt to work with, and moss seems happy to grow naturally, we are working to make the moss even more of a feature. In working out our plans at the property, I have discovered Moss Acres. They are answering all my questions about creating a moss garden and perusing the projects that they have been involved with are so inspiring. Aren’t these beautiful?

The best part about moss is that it needs little care and when without water it doesn’t really die, it just chages color but then springs back with a little rain. Really is quite a good ‘green’ alternative to grass (lame pun intended).
