I have a large piece of property which about 75% is lawn. When i started out approx. 30yrs. ago my lawn was fairly good, but thruout the years the expense and trying to find a competent and reasonable landscaper has become an impossible chore. We have started to convert our lawn into a Japanese type garden. How can i cultivate my existing moss to create more.

You can transplant patches of moss from your existing moss garden or you can make a slurry and pour it wherever you'd like moss to grow. Take a clump of healthy moss and crumble it into your blender. Add 2 cups of buttermilk and 2 cups of water
Blend at the lowest speed until it is completely mixed and the consistency of a thin milk shake. (add water if necessary) Paint the mixture onto rocks, pots or statuary, or simply pour it on the ground wherever you'd like your moss to grow!
