Will the bad weeds go thru the moss pads?

The best way to control weeds is with proper soil preparation and regular maintenance. If the land is first cleared of weeds and then a thick layer (4 - 5” or more) of compost is applied before planting, you have a good chance of getting the upper hand. Planting through the compost is the best way. Then regular weeding until the groundcover knits together will give you a fighting chance. You will get the occasional weed coming up after that but if you pounce quickly, you will be victorious!

Hello, thank you for your question. The groundcover to the far left is Herniaria glabra 'Green Carpet.' In the center, where the groundcover has knited together, the dark green "moss" is Sagina subulata (Irish Moss) and the lime-green "moss" is Sagina subulata 'Aurea' (Scotch Moss).

As noted, Irish Moss and Scotch Moss are Sagina plants which are NOT true mosses (bryophytes). These "moss fakers" have flowers, seeds and roots. They do not possess the amazing botanical characteristics of truenon-vascular mosses which tolerate weather conditions in all plant zones. Since mosses are resistant to all pests and diseases, you will never need to use pesticides or herbicides. You could create this same effect using real mosses that offer a variety of textures, shapes and shades of green. Although many moss species grow in the shade, there are sun-tolerant types as well. Moisture is the key factor not sun exposure for achieving long-term success.

Hi! I like the tall grasses in the back. What are they? I'm hoping it's not pampas because I've got small kids. :-) Thanks!

The bright pink flowers up-front are quite striking, and I like the use of moss as a low ground-cover! I hadn't thought of doing that, although I don't know if we have enough moisture.
