I have a lot of natural moss growing along the shady pathway to my garden. The path is just natural clay periodically amended with sand, makes a good non-muddy surface to roll across (clay + sand = concrete). Moss has taken over on both sides of the path and along the stone borders, and it's been an unexpected but perfect touch. We leave it alone. Do any of you take advantage of moss in the landscape? It so purty and welcoming!

All the time! It happens spontaneously which means to me that it is low maintenance! I have a lot of it along shady and northern parts of the flagstone path and between the stones as well. I love the feel on bare feet, too!

Mosses are a natural approach to preserve water, manage erosion, filter rainfall, clean up dangerous substances, and sequester carbon in an environmentally friendly way. Mosses also act as bioindicators for air pollution, acid rain, water pollution, and wastewater treatment in the environment.
