Every year we seem to lose more and more of our grassy lawn to moss. It’s almost like we have some sort of rainforest-type atmosphere sitting over our little homestead.
The sandy soil seems to take over any area that was previously covered with grass, and then the shade from the trees form a carpet of moss so that there is a beautiful illusion of a well manicured lawn. From a distance.
While I was perusing Facebook earlier today, I came upon a photo that a friend shared from a page called Old Moss Woman’s Secret Garden.
I think this is a pretty spiffy idea! We have plenty of moss and Creeping Charlie to cover most of it, and I guess could fill in empty spaces with pine cones and fallen pine branches. Maybe I could transplant some of my Vinca next to it for some flowery accent.
