I was reading an article recently regarding the use of Peat Moss as a ground cover. As this is readly available at garden stores and not expensive I was wondering if anyone has used it, or know of it been used.
I would imagine that it could be graded into coarse- medium - fine grades. I would think it would make a good base coating.
Not used Peat Moss, up here Peat Moss is the moist variety. I have a couple of containers of what in the north is called Reindeer Moss, which I understand in the southern USA is called spanish moss. As well as another moss, not sure what it is called, but it is similar to Lichen. Both of these are a light brown/grey colour. When dry, the "lichen" like material is extremely brittle. I have not used it yet, it is just sitting there in it's plastic buckets, .
I guess that Peat Moss, like any dirt, could be used as ground cover. Even fresh out of the sack it would be a little damp, so I would dry it out in the oven before applying it. Not sure how it would take to color-changing paints though.
