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.
shady areas and acidic soil, moss lawns can be ideal. Its low-growing habit eliminates the need for mowing, and the texture of mosses is a perfect foil for nearby flowering perennials and evergreens.
