The Arbor Project: Scotch Moss (Sneak Peek 2)

Here is another sneak peek at the Arbor Project for the Better Homes and Gardens 48 Hour Blog Challenge. Today's look is just one of the elements in my planting scheme.  I've had a fondness for Scotch Moss (Sagina subulata) for a while but never really had a place for it, until now! I managed to divide the four clumps that I bought into 8 smaller clumps that would be a perfect fit for some of the gaps in my stone borders. The stones are square and have been adjusted to curve which means they have left small pie shaped gaps between them.  These are perfect spots for Scotch moss to inhabit.  I packed a little of the native clay soil into the cracks first then pressed the clumps into the gaps.  Scotch moss is great between stepping stones and handles foot traffic pretty well.

Previous Peeks!
