Many people don’t like moss. They see it as a troublesome intruder onto their bricks and other hardscaping features. Most people are trying to get rid of moss because they see it as a parasitic invader into their perfect yard, but what if I told you that it could be helpful? Today, we’re going to take a look into the wild world of moss and find out how it can benefit your next landscaping project. There’s no need to fight the moss when you can utilize it. Let’s check out how.
Moss can strengthen a garden.
That’s right! Moss is incredibly helpful to the plants and soil in your garden. Now, before we get into this, it should be mentioned that there are a ton of different kinds. The one we’re going to discuss in this portion is “Peat Moss.” Now, because of its ability to retain moisture, it can provide little sips of water for your plants when the rain has let you down. Moss is an incredibly resilient plant. It also can help bind sandy soil together so that your plants can thrive. Do you have soil with lots of clay in it? Peat Moss can help with that too. It can open up little pathways for the roots of your plants to thrive in. Peat moss will also prevent the soil from hardening. There are a ton of benefits to using Peat Moss in your garden, so give it a try this season.
Add some flair with a little moss.
If you’re interested in having a landscape that is both beautiful to look at and comfortable to walk on, then consider adding some moss into your next project. You can create a path with some moss or maybe it can give a splash of light green to your lawn. This little green carpet, in all of its varieties, is very soft and pleasant to walk on. So, having a little patch integrated into your landscape can add a little cozy spot. Moss is the new grass, after all.
