Moss adds a soft texture to your landscape and makes the garden appear more lush. A layer of moss growing on rocks or wooden yard elements adds character to the space. You can aid in the moss growth in your landscape with a few common home ingredients, although the moss won't thrive unless the environment is moist and shady.

Things You'll Need

  • Moss
  • Plain yogurt
  • Blender
  • Shade
  • Metal brush

Video of the Day

Select the proper growing site for your moss. Moss needs a cool, moist, shady area in order to survive.

Toss 1 cup of plain yogurt, 1 cup of water and a handful of moss in the blender and make a slurry.

Paint the moss slurry on the area where you want to have moss grow. Mist the slurry-coated area to keep it moist until the moss begins growing.
