Tony, very interesting article on moss. I was just observing some we have here that is abundant on the hill sides. I've no idea as to which kind it is but it looks very much like the second picture but I'm not sure which kind of moss that one is.
I love the tactile experience of it, however.
Thanks, Lee

What a great idea! You have given me my chore for today. I have several different mosses growing about the place. I need to pay attention to where they are and see if I can incorporate some in my gardens.

Very interesting article. I saw a Gardener's Diary where a woman had moss instead of grass. That is my goal for a couple areas in my yard, where grass won't grow or where mowing is not easy.

Thanks for promoting the use of such a wonderful plant. I encourage moss growth in several areas of our landscape and I've tried transplanting some but the drought conditions in GA have been working against me. Still, like every Spring, I'm hoping for a year of plentiful rain.

Thanks for spreading the word about the benefits of gardening with moss. I hope more people will embrace this fascinating plant as a viable horticultural option in sustainable landscapes. The appeal of the year-round green delights me even in the winter when everybody else is looking at a barren landscape covered in brown bark mulch. In addition to creating moss focal features and serene retreats, moss is a great alternative to mulch.
