Are You Kidding me? Why would anyone want to kill Moss?
Mosses grow in many forms.
Moss: One of the most beautiful ingredients in God's Landscape Designs
Travel to any moist climate, or wooded area on this earth and you will find some of God's most creative embellishments to His Garden Designs. The presence of moss in our environment symbolizes abundance, fertility, growth and reproduction. Moss is a plant that reminds us of the longevity of our biosphere. The natural cycle of life and nurturing and finally the recycling of the dead. Often the least traveled paths have the most amazing moss coverings. Moss is a very simple type of plant that lacks conventional roots, stems, and leaves.
The name moss refers to any species of the class Bryopsida and is part of the division Bryophyta. Bryophyta means the first green land plants to develop during the evolutionary process. Moss is thought to have evolved from very primitive plants. Moss has not evolved to any other kind of plant it still exists in the same form as it had originated from.
With more than 10,000 species in 700 scientific genera, mosses are nearly twice as diverse as mammals, and are second only to flowering plants and ferns in their vast diversity. Because mosses have no flowers, no leaves or roots, I find them more interesting and highly desirable in garden ambiance than many flowering plants and even some ferns.
So I answer the HUB Question "How to Kill Moss?" with the great question: "WHY? Why would anyone want to kill moss? Move it maybe, change the environment maybe, but after looking at the benefits and beauty of this living art form...would you? could you? or even....should you?
How could anyone not be tempted to lie languidly across an Emerald Green Carpet created by nature. This would be to me the most relaxing and inviting place to take a nap. Moss is a glorious curiousity and opens our imaginations to thoughts of Fairies, Pixies, Gnomes and Leperachauns! Moss could even naturalize the "Concrete Jungle" created by man if left to do it's glorious work, just think of older countries like in Europe or the Mediterranean, moss covered remnants of lost cultures and old government buildings, civilizations no longer hustle and bustle throughtout the ancient courtyards, but as natural as the earths' original form, moss moves in and beautifies all that man left for ruin.
