Landscape Backyard Ideas - Moss AcresWhen used in the gardening world, the term "shade" can actually have a variety of different connotations. Shade could mean that your backyard landscape would be completely sheltered from light at all times of the day, or it could simply refer to the area of a plant not facing direct sunlight. Also, as seasons change, it is likely that different places in your backyard will continuously receive different amounts of light. For example, during the morning hours, parts of your garden might see direct sun, but for the rest of the day this area might be shaded. The terms light shade, partial shade, partial sun, and full sun are all used to differentiate the numerous possible scenarios. It is important to note the general amount of light and shade your backyard landscape receives before proceeding with moss path. Each of our mosses are extremely versatile - capable of handling harsh conditions which other plants might reject - however, some of our mosses favor partial sunlight, others prefer shade, and still others like fern moss, can thrive in both.
