Woodland Shade Gardening

Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!

Aha!

Colonized close to tree trunk.

And to think I didn’t even have to pay someone to install my moss!  The city engineer, his assistant, and the president of our Homeowners Association were walking the creek behind our house last week, deciding to dredge out the center for better flow.  The engineer was asking me some questions about mosquitoes, snakes, erosion into the creek, etc.  He walked up to the outside of the fence and began looking at the yard and said “This is really a nice yard”.  Of course, I just swooned!  But he was extremely interested in the fact that I don’t do anything to get the moss to grow.  He said he is on a wooded lot out in the county and is going home and inspect the ground underneath the grass he works to grow.  I think he may have become a moss convert!
