transplanting moss sod

Has anyone out there tried transplanting moss sod en masse? My goal is not so much to create a pretty landscape as it is to preserve a large amount of moss that will be removed for a construction project. We were thinking of just rolling it up, storing it nicely, and rolling in back out when we are done. Has anyone tried anything like this? Any ideas?

Thanks so much!! And thanks from the moss!

RE: transplanting moss sod

Post a picture of the moss or send me an email. Most but not all moss can be stored for weeks. Store out of sunlight and not in plastic.

I have probably seventy different kinds of moss collected over the last three months that are kept in paper bags on my back porch that I am working on identifying and will transplant some into moss gardens when the heat wave we are now experiencing abates.
