Outdoors? Climate? Could it be done in indoor courtyard? With moss?

Although I don't know the conditions, I imagine that this idea would work - but you will still require reasonable light levels. Alternatively, instead of moss you could incorporate the Japanese sand garden style with rocks and water and a perhaps couple of plants

Hi, it is Fairy bamboo (Bambusa gracilis) a graceful clump forming thin stemmed bamboo.

What kind of moss or ground cover is that? - I have a small atrium and it has really nice filtered skylight, and it is fully indoors... I love this idea!

Hi, thanks for your question. The mossy plant is Scleranthus biflorus a New Zealand native, I'm not sure which other countries it is available in. It can handle full sun just fine, but doesn't like wet feet. I hope that helps.

You could perhaps try a sand-blasted glass as a substitute and with regards to the plants perhaps Baby Tears as recently featured on Houzz could be an option for you.

Hi, thanks for your question. The plant is Scleranthus biflorus, a New Zealand native. It's really happy in full sun, and requires good drainage.

Unlikely, it is frost hardy - but you're talking seriously cold!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz added this to Zen Garden
Zen gardens are designed to create a stripped-down awareness of thought.
Matt Kilburn added this to 6 Great Ways With Garden Ground Covers
In rock gardens. Rock gardens are unique growing environments, and not all plants will appreciate the arid conditions. In addition to alpine plants, there are some ground covers that flourish in these conditions and can create interesting, low-maintenance and miniature gardens. Knawel cushion (Scleranthus biflorus, zones 9 to 11) is a truly fascinating specimen that will likely become a feature in your rock garden. This slow growing, mound-forming plant provides a dense carpet of green foliage that will slowly creep over the surrounding rocks. Make sure that the soil is well drained, as knawel cushion is prone to rotting with too much water.
