At Home Project: Moss Garden

At Home Project: Moss Garden


Next time you go on your daily government approved walk, bring a small container to collect pebbles, moss and sandy dirt under the moss you collect. This is a garden idea for those that do not have green thumbs or want plants but do not have time/space etc for them as moss requires little care and is beautiful. This is also a fun idea to engage children with nature in quarantine. 



You Need:


  • Moss
  • Pebbles
  • Container of choosing
  • Spray bottle 
  • Silt/dirt (more sandy dirt)
  • Optional:
    • Sticks
    • Cool rocks/energy stones
    • Seashells
    • Leaves
    • Anything you want in your moss garden! 




  1. Place layer of pebbles in containers of choice
  2. Place a thin layer of sandy dirt.
  3. Spray and sprinkle water to moisten dirt.
  4. Lay moss over dirt. Use a tweezer to put it into the desired place.
    1. Moss can be broken into different sizes as well. 
    2. To create terrain layer pebbles over the first layer of pebbles and dirt then place moss. 
  5. Mist the top layer of moss again or sprinkle with water.
  6. Add any decorations that you want.
