Moss, ok to leave it?

socalgal_gw Zone USDA 10b Sunset 24December 27, 2011

I have some areas in my yard where moss is growing. In some spots I think it looks nicer than the bare dirt that was there. Am I going to regret it if I leave it there? It seems like moss is considered a problem - and I do notice that it is beginning to spread to other areas where I don't like the looks.

We live on the north side of the mountain, and relish the moss that grows this time of year. We think it is attractive in a pretty drab season. When we get more sun in the spring it goes away. Al

I love it. As long as it is not growing on your roof and ruining your shingles I would enjoy it. I think people who want perfect bluegrass lawns 1.5 inches high hate moss.
