Encouraging Moss Growth

Why use mosses?
Mosses readily thrive in most shady and moist landscapes. Mossy lawns result where grass growth is limited.  Instead of fighting the losing grass battle, consider the viewpoint of accepting and encouraging mosses as an alternative ground cover.  Mosses add a soft beauty not only to lawns and gardens, but also to home and landscape structures such as stone walls, walkways, and rooftops.  Further, mosses are able to grow on a variety of substrates from rocks, to soil and tree bark.
