Why can’t I have a moss lawn?

Wouldn’t moss work for a lawn in western Oregon?

Moss covers the ground on the right side of the rock edge.  Grass is on the left.  I know the grass is greener but can’t we cultivate a greener moss?

It would certainly conserve energy; mainly ours.

Don mowed the back and side yards and I trimmed half the front yard riverbank.  Hey, why is “backyard” one word and “front yard” is two?

The hill is too steep to mow so a weed eater is the only option.  I would love it if it could be covered in moss!

When I get started, I don’t want to stop until it’s finished.  I don’t want to think about doing it again for another 2 or 3 weeks.  I guess I’m feeling my age.

Oh well, at least we gave the otters and mergansers something to watch for a change.

Grass stains…nothing a little Oxyclean won’t get out 🙂
