Moss Control - How do you keep the moss from growing on/over the stepping stones?
   Comment   January 31, 2013

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
If there is a shady area you'd like to cover, then you have the perfect opportunity to grow a bed of moss. Moss transplants quite easily, as it is not a deeply rooted plant, although it may take a while to spread over a large area. Why not cut to the chase and cover the ground with a moss slurry? You'll have a beautiful ground of moss in about 4-6 weeks.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Hardscaping Shows Its Soft Side
Stone set over soil with planted joints costs much less and uses fewer resources than a grouted and mortared stone path. It also integrates well with the adjacent plantings while adding dimension, texture and pattern to the composition.
