Moss Topiary

moss topiary

This was relatively simple to make: Just form any shape you desire from mesh chicken wire, stuff it tightly with sphagnum moss (water retention), and then smear on a thick layer of clay-based soil on the outside of the form (this acts as an adhesive for the moss).

For the crocodile, sheets of fern moss were then attached over the entire frame and are watered regularly (preferably with rain water) to keep the croc looking a lush and vibrant green.  Fern Moss needs shade - do not locate your moss topiary in a location where it will receive any prolonged direct sun.
