Moss Covered Rocks a Garden feature with lush green color adds to surroundings
Moss covered rocks come in varying shapes and sizes, and are an attractive addition to any garden or landscaping design. They are harvested from quarries and are the ideal accent near landscape walls and water features. The rocks have lush green hues adding color to gardens and can appear as a beautiful carpet of green. They are mainly famous for landscape designs because they are easy to care for and thrive with very little attention. Moss covered rocks complement their environment, and are attractive in any area of a garden. They are also inexpensive to purchase, which adds to their popularity.
When a garden or landscape project can benefit from moss covered rocks, it is possible to purchase the stones. The moss on these kinds of rocks is alive and will remain green year round as long as they are kept moist. Moss covered rocks can be found in nature in woodland areas. The moss will grow to encompass other nearby rocks and while this is a natural progression bringing rocks home from natural regions may not produce the same effect. In some cases, the moss on rocks taken from nature can have disease or organisms that can infect plants they are near in a short amount of time.Though, the plant will do alright getting some bright indirect sun daily but may need to be misted more often. Moss has no specific growing zone and will adapt to any location and weather.
These rocks change an ordinary garden into something magical and add character to a yard. They can be used to make a rock garden where flowers will be planted between them. They add the perfect accent when used in gardens and water areas on a property, such as a natural-looking fountain. Flowers planted near the moss covered rocks will appear to have more vibrant deeper color against the deep green and gray of the stone. These types of rocks are just like rocks from nature being different sizes and shapes rather than being the same, so each has its unique look. Where ever the stones are used they will stand out and bring character to the area.
