It's a euphorbia. I'm not sure exactly which one as someone gifted it to me out of her garden. Thanks for the question.

Hi. Thanks for the inquiry. This is moss. It can handle only occasionally light foot traffic. The toughest ground cover I know of is Mazus. You may want to consult a good local garden center to see what will do well under your conditions in your area. Beware of English ivy as it is toxic to dogs if ingested.

Hi, thanks. This absolutely would work in Virginia. In my opinion, the key to a good looking natural water feature is that you have a natural slope. You can always build up a flat area but it never looks quite as natural. Good luck! Send in some photos if you decide to execute your project.

Introduce the element of water. Few things have captured the imagination of the human race like water. Water nourishes and sustains, reflects and absorbs light, and provides a home to a multitude of creatures, all of which are reasons to include some type of water element in almost every garden. The sound and movement of water bring a special degree of visceral animation to the garden.The specific type of water feature you choose to incorporate into your personal space will vary according to your affinities, space and budget. You may choose a naturalistic type of pond like the one shown here, or even a trickle of water flowing through a piece of bamboo in a Japanese garden. Tip: Consider having your water feature professionally designed, and buy the best equipment you can afford. There is nothing relaxing and nurturing about broken pumps, algae blooms and water leaks.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Moss: Nature's Carpet for the Garden
Moss most frequently grows in damp or humid areas. Diverse species can grow in sun or shade, in soil, on rocks and on tree trunks. In summer it can be a plush carpet that anchors our gardens; in winter its luxuriant evergreen color provides that much-needed respite from seasonal doldrums.
Annie Thornton added this to 9 Ideas for Thoughtful Gardening in 2014
1. Design a garden that makes you feel good. Gardens can be an extension of your design style, a complement to your home’s architecture or a way to share your point of view with the world, but they also can be healers. Outdoor spaces, plants and wildlife often have restorative powers that no perfectly decorated room can match. Make your garden a place you can be proud of, but most important, make it a place you can feel yourself in. Don’t worry about expectations, and build a garden that makes you feel at home — that’s the masterpiece.See more: Unwind in Your Own Private Garden Escape

curved bed lines will calm you down and inspire a sense of well-being and creativity. Another benefit of using curved bed lines is that they make it easier to transition from one type of planting to another. This way your plants won't end up looking like cans on a grocery store shelf.
