Live Moss Carpet

Wow! this live moss carpet designed by Nguyen La Chanh is such a novel idea.   I love the idea of bringing nature into the home and actually living with it – in the sense of giving the plants a greater purpose…rather than living around it – in the sense of having them around to water and just look at.  The moisture that seeps into the mat nourishes the moss. No more damp, smelly bathroom mats to contend with. I think it is very pretty.  They aren’t commercially available but over at yanko design, there is a discussion with the designer on how he made it.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Hmm, this looks very nice and I can anticipate how nice it would feel under my feet but a moss mat in MY bathroom would lead to moss everywhere else.
