Moss is always a great choice of plant for many landscapes and gardens. These can often times be planted in areas that other plants tend to not grow in. They are low maintenance plants and typically tend to be able to thrive in all different soil types. Moss will need to be kept moist. It also prefers to be planted in shaded areas where the soil is well drained. Another great thing about moss is that it can easily be used as an alternative to grass. Using moss instead of grass can decrease the need for lawn maintenance, which is why it has become a popular alternative.
