Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Moss: Nature's Carpet for the Garden
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.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 7 Low-Maintenance Lawn Alternatives
Moss(Hypnum or Thuidium spp)For those with moist, 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. Moss needs no fertilizer and very little water once it's established, but it does not handle heavy foot traffic well. If you want to walk through it daily, plan to add a flagstone walkway to avoid damaging your lawn. Depending on the variety, moss is adapted to zones 4 to 10 and is native to most states.Growing tips: Plant it in the spring after the last frost, pressing moss chunks into the soil. Keep it moist for the first three weeks. Depending on the growing conditions and spacing when planted, a moss lawn could take a year to fill in.

Moss can also grow beautifully between patio pavers if the area is shaded and moist. Soil acidification is the best way to encourage moss to grow this way, although it can be successfully transplanted. Don't cut it too thinly, as it can readily dry out before it has become established.
