spacing when planted, a moss lawn could take a year to fill in.
Moss in the backyard! Good for moist, shady, acidic soils. Not much foot traffic, so would need path, but it would save a lot in landscaping!
So this is just moss that kind of looks like grass. I love the idea of having this as ground
Moss? Would it work in our backyard? Also like sphere stones and circular design.

Looking into ideas for not mowing
Moss can be recruited for use as a lawn, too. If you already have patches of moss growing in your shaded turf, take a cue from nature and consider replacing your lawn with moss. It can take limited foot traffic once it has become established.

else growing wild....I would love my backyard to have this kind of a feel....
this idea where the maple trees are
Meadow lawn!!! Low maintenance and romantic. Great for a large backyard.
Idea of a lawn meadow. Not all areas of the lawn are mowed. Some left to revert into meadow.
what an idea for my back lawn
Mix of rough lawn and mown, fruit trees and bench colour
The treatment of the grass in this orchard is a great example of how changing mowing patterns can create a meadow lawn. The paths are still closely cut while the squares under the trees have converted to meadow, with an abundance of flowering grasses and the lacy flowers of cow parsley (Anthriscus s
Keep it simple A mown path through a wooded patch and a sprinkling of cow parsley can be all you need, as this inviting garden shows. I love the idea of sitting here surrounded by wildlife and fruit trees in the dappled shade. Just perfect.

I like the idea of sitting on that bench but not want to step in the grass. Art???
love the idea of a deep root system
New York state, we have to ask ourselves: Do we really need all of that lawn, or is it just a default landscape setting? What are we sweating, spraying and fertilizing for?
Grass idea for next to carport ... like!
with slow growth habits but that mimic traditional lawns.If you let your lawn grow taller, the roots will go deeper and the blades will shade the soil, trapping more moisture.

Drifts of naturalistic plantings
Turn the backyard into a greenspace - who needs a pedicured lawn - although consider what the tonsof leaves will do when they fall. What about weeding?
Lawn replaced with biodiversity of plants
Replace lawns with larger, ornamental plants for more visual punch and biodiversity. Larger spaces can go lawn free with mixed plantings of perennials, shrubs, trees and grasses. This type of landscape renovation solves the monoculture problems that are inherent with lawns. Greater plant diversity
