What is your recommendation for protecting moss from leaves? I assume the netting plays a role but I’m unsure what type and how to implement it.

Thanks for any info you can provide.



Dear Jeff,

I would recommend the same 3/8 inch mesh for leaf collection that is recommended for critter deterrence.

For leaves and falling debris, you can simply roll the netting out without pinning it down; after enough leaves have fallen, roll it back up and add to your compost pile. Repeat this until the leaves are done for the season. It is perfectly fine to allow the leaves to stay on top of your moss for a couple of weeks; you do not need to clean the netting too often.
