Moss and lichens provide water retentive micro-environments for many invertebrate species and every  garden, yard, urban space ... designs that includes them benefits us all.

"This is a trial to see how much the mosses will enhance the statue and the dull corner" says Joel,"We are preparing some stone for Mossy bases for Bronzes and other sculptures ready for clients and for exhibitions next year"
