Live Moss As Ground Cover For Sunny Lawns

Most mosses thrive in shade or partial shade but our Bryum moss (also called Sun moss) grows well in sunny gardens.

This moss is often used between pavers or as an alternative for grass. We recommend a maximum of 8 sun hours. You can order sun moss as a milkshake or as moss plants.


Live Moss For Lawns With Partial Or Full Shade

Our live moss can be used as ground cover for (partially) shaded lawns (max 4 hours of sunlight). We sell two mosses of the Hypnum, known by their common names as ‘Sheet Moss’ (Hypnum Imponens) and ‘Carpet Moss (Hypnum Cupressiforme).

These mosses can tolerate moderate foot traffic and are a popular alternative to traditional grass lawns.

How do I care for my live moss?

Moss plants are low maintenance. They thrive in shaded areas with high humidity. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and mist the moss regularly with filtered water until the moss is established. After 6-12 weeks, rainwater is normally sufficient, and (almost) no maintenance is required. Read more about live moss care in this article.

Where can I buy live moss?

You can purchase living moss directly from our webshop and we will harvest your order fresh. We do not stock up because this can damage the plants and we want to ship every order fresh. Feel free to contact us if you have questions about the live moss you want to buy.

How do I install live moss in my garden?

Before you install the live moss, you should clear the area of debris and weeds, moisten the soil, and press the moss firmly onto the surface to remove any air pockets. Keep the area moist with clean filtered water (or rainwater) until the moss establishes itself (6-12 weeks). Read more in this article about how to plant and grow a moss lawn.
