Sphagnum Moss grows fast and steadily, and you don't have to worry about upkeep
When it comes to lawn, most folks might not consider moss as a beautiful alternative, but it indeed is, and Sphagnum Moss can create a lovely dense green ground cover, instead of traditional grass. It's also kind to the environment in its small way because this particular moss can store large amounts of carbon which helps reduce global warming. The living plant works ideally in shady areas with moist soil and is low-growing, forming thick mats. Sphagnum Moss is so strong; it can support the weight of a magnificent moose walking across it.
Spagnum Moss is pure to grow and requires a few basics
In nature, the plant is found in acidic soil around wet, boggy areas and wooded swamps. That means lime is not a friend to this moss. The plant only likes partial to full shade and does well in well-drained soil, sandy or clay forms.
Spagnum Moss produces a velvety green blanket and is ideal for sloping areas and places where grass has difficulty growing
The plant also features tiny leaves that grow very close to the stem, and some of them have "teeth." The dense clumps they amass can even float atop bog water. It's quite resilient and draws its nutrients from the air and water rather than the soil. It makes for the perfect shady garden and adds interesting texture, greenery and what many terms "calming beauty" to one's landscape design. The moss can even proliferate under water.
