What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Plants for Your Pathway
5. Irish or Scotch Moss (Sagina subulata), USDA zones 4-8. Irish (also called Scotch) moss isn't really a moss, though it looks like one. It presents a very tight, dense group of small, soft leaves with a sponge-like look. Irish moss grows extremely quickly and isn't very particular about soil, but it does do better in slightly shady areas. Usually this is sold in flats, like sod. Just cut it into small strips and place it around your pavers.
Simon and Garfunkel suggested, "Slow down, you move too fast." Informal stepping stones usually mean a slow, contemplative pace through the garden. What better place to introduce subtle plays of foliage and texture? This shift in scale, from broad brush to intimate detail, makes a trip through the garden a richer experience.
