Live Moss In Landscaping Is More Than an Evergreen Ground Cover

Moss has many uses. Much of the targeted marketing that influences home and business owners is predicated on the idea that you are a consumer who will continue to buy goods and materials. Vibrant images lead property owners to believe thick green lawns are a must. Of course, you will need to make lifelong purchases that include better seeds, fertilizers, mowers, weed whackers, and, perhaps worst, pesticides. An enviable green lawn ranks among the minor sustainable aspects of today's landscape.

That's why environmentally conscious nurseries encourage property owners to consider employing moss to complete their grounds. Moss has proven ecological and landscape benefits that have flown under the radar. Home and business owners are asked to make a one-time purchase when a plant nursery posts a "Moss For Sale" sign. Nothing worries fertilizer and pesticide corporations more than a TN nursery offering an inexpensive way to beautify a property without spending money year after year. If you are concerned about the environment and want to save money on property upkeep and maintenance, the following information about moss could be a game-changer.

Ecological Benefits of a Live Moss 

In her work, "The Magical World of Moss Gardening," author Annie Martin makes a convincing argument that going green with moss is in everyone's best interest. She points out that mosses come in a wide variety of species and are more inclined to convert C02 into oxygen. Include that grass-based lawns are usually mowed routinely, and moss can far outpace them in green efficiency. From an environmental and practical standpoint, these are other reasons that home and business owners can do their part by converting to moss lawns and gardens.

  • No Pollutants: Moss landscapes do not require hazardous fertilizers or pesticides to maintain color vibrancy. Fertilizers and pesticides damage moss beds. Homeowners who plant tracts of moss can eliminate risky chemicals that seep into the water supply and threaten children and pets.
  • Water Conservation: It's no secret that communities struggle with rising water costs. The hot Tennessee summers require home and business owners to water lawns frequently, or they turn brown. Moss requires less water to look healthy, which helps community members with conservation efforts and saves money.
  • Carbon Sequestration: The world's mosses soak up more carbon dioxide than the combined acreage of all the rainforests. They sequester an estimated 200-500 billion tons of carbon and represent a powerful force in preventing environmental devastation.
  • Reduce Dust: Families who struggle with allergies will be pleased to discover that most naturally decomposes dust and contaminants. Mosses convert them into the harmless matter rather than dust and chemicals when mowing the grass lawn.

Any pragmatic TN nursery understands that everyday people want their properties to be both sustainable and appealing. Although grass marketing makes almost unnoticeable distinctions between types, moss lawns and gardens open many possibilities.

Moss Types for Lawns & Gardens

Home and commercial property owners interested in improving their landscapes are often surprised to discover that moss can outpace grass inflexible use and beautification. Conducting due diligence about these and other widespread lawn mosses may prove helpful.

  • Carpet Moss: This type is widely used in areas with thin trees. It covers the ground and converts areas that would otherwise be brown with leaves and pine needles into lush landscapes.
  • Hypnum Sheet Moss: This type can completely replace grass lawns under lighting conditions. Along with needing virtually no maintenance, it can grow up to the base of trees. Moss lawns tend to be more green than grass lawns in many cases.

Mosses used in place of grass lawns highlight how vast an area they can effectively cover. But there are wide-reaching varieties that can be infused into existing gardens. For example, spot moss plantings help gardeners create a sense of texture that accentuates gardens.

Perfect Mosses For a Mossarium 


  1. Cushion Moss

  You might even want to lay your head on it. It's tempting, although; it may only cover a little. Cushion Moss is part of the white moss family and ranges from 50 cm to 1 m across. It needs plenty of moisture, so watering is often necessary, but be careful not to overwater. If given the proper time and care, you can create a bed of cushions the forest floor will be jealous of and make one handsome mossarium to boot.

 2. Hair Cap Moss

 This moss would be in the wig business if you could pull it off. As it grows, it takes on wild, sprawling stems with stalks protruding in different directions. That makes for an excellent one-off piece in a mossarium; It has 1.5-inch-tall stalks, with each leaf 6-12 mm long. Hair Cap Moss is either breaking into the hair industry soon or preferably giving your mossarium the character it deserves.

 3. Fern Moss

But if you treat it right, you'll have a beautiful addition to your mossarium.

 5. Carpet Moss
