Faux Driftwood Moss Garden

Another Successful Hypertufa Project

Faux Driftwood Moss Garden

There are some things that are so simple yet turn out to be something extraordinary.  This set of planters is just a one.

Making these flat dishes was my experiment in using cloth as a strengthener, and it worked well for that, but now what do I do with the resulting flat dishes? 

Suddenly it came to me; plant them with moss and make them into a dry streambed!

I went one further, and combined them into one long multi level display with mossy logs, a rocky mountain freshet and even found a stone with moss already growing on it.

Moss is an unusual 'plant' - it doesn't need soil, just moisture to cling to rocks and hypertufa. Find out more about how to grow it to use in planters and crafts here.

I put some soil in anyway, just to change the levels that the moss will eventually fill in to make an undulating surface.  Just give it a few months, and some rain...

The streambed will fill in and settle, and in time it will look like a miniature moss garden.  Do you love miniature landscapes?  I know I do!
