Growing a Moss Lawn
We have recently moved to the coast and our new home is on a north facing slope. We are completely surrounded by woodland, and the only "lawn" to speak of is a small area over the septic field. The previous owners did not maintain it, and it is now about 80% moss and 20% broad leaf weeds and grass. Since the moss is obviously thriving, we have decided to convert it to a moss lawn. I have read that sulphur will help encourage the moss, but am wondering if anyone can suggest how to eradicate the grass (seems backwards, doesn't it?). Also, I've noticed at this time of the year we have several different species of fungus popping up, and I am wondering if there is anything I can do to discourage them as well. Your advice or tips would be appreciated!
