Terramac Moss Carpet

Terramac® of Unika Ltd is made from a combined biodegradable plant biomass

With some kind of resin to form a fabric that works as a planter box

and grow algae and small plants indoors as a live carpet.


Helen Nodding's Moss Graffiti Recipe


1 cans of beer (others use yogurt or buttermilk)

1/2 teaspoon of sugar

Several clusters of moss in the garden


You will also need a plastic container (with lid),

a blender and a paint brush


To start the recipe, first collect a few algae (algae are usually found in damp, shady places) and shred them into a mixer. Then add the beer and sugar and mix to a smooth, creamy consistency. Now pour the mixture into a plastic container.

Find a damp, shaded wall where you can apply algae milkshakes on it. Paint your chosen design on the wall (using a free hand or template). If possible, try to return to the area in the coming weeks to keep the mixture moist. Soon collated algae lice should begin to reunite into a rooted plant, preserving the design of your choice before colonizing the entire area.

Heart We cannot separate the human heart from the environment outside, and we cannot say that once one of these is corrected, everything will be improved. Human is organic with the world. Inner life molds the environment and is deeply influenced by itself. One affects the other, and any change in a person's life is the result of these mutual reactions…

Next to my house I found a rock in a dry river bed with two eyes and a mouth with moss. If you have an e-mail, I can send you a photo. The rock is 25 ' tall, 14 ' wide and approximately 125 pounds.The face 5 ' Acrost. Real and not touched. Thank you.

I think if the moss grows on rocks it definitely grows on the canvas. I guess the question is: does a gesso floor prevent the canvas from rot and mold on the back? Moss needs some water here and there, so I think a cotton canvas with a puddle will take a few years. Canvas with a heavy gesso, maybe a few years longer… I'm just guessing iyor Sounds so much fun… maybe it lasts longer than masonite or wood…. You have other opinions… please.

A canvas with Gesso can work depending on whether it is waterproof or not. Oils and acrylic paints are waterproof, but I don't know if they will grow on algae. You can find waterproof canvas, but once again, algae may not like synthetic material. If I were you, I would try very heavy cotton or linen canvas, and when you get older, you can find a nice shaded place outdoors and put a new one inside.

I love the “edges deki on your website, which contain close-up pictures of plants, many of which are variegated. I'm a gardener who loves variegated plants and wants to know the English (and latin if applicable) names of these wonderful plants. I don't know some…

I was wondering why I didn't see Irish Moss in any of the paintings. I've just finished planting 70 Irish moss between paving stones and a sunny area and hope it will be a nice place. Why you do not use? Thanks.

6 Lawn Care Musts for Your Fall Yard

Among lawn care professionals, the best way to achieve thick, green and healthy lawn in spring is to give a well-timed care in autumn - in other words, right now. However, according to Scott Frith, CEO of Lawn Doctor, a lawn care company with more than 200 franchises nationwide, many homeowners make the same basic mistakes before they fall asleep and then cause better performance of their lawn. Wonders. . I wonder more. Here is Frith's seven-step program to get a nice lawn next year.

1. Remove the leaves.

A carpet of colorful autumn leaves can look nice and can be fun to play, but they are not good for your lawn. Blocks light and traps moisture, potentially fatal strokes for unlucky grass beneath. So as the leaves fall, blow or rake them as often as possible. Even after the trees remain bare, continue to remove the corners of the wind. If you don't do this, come on the grass at the bottom of this grassland, the rotting mat will be dead.

2. Continue cutting, but to the correct height.

Don't put that mower away yet. The grass continues to grow until the first hard frost and therefore requires regular cuts to keep it ideally 2 to 3 inches high. If you let it stay too long, it becomes dull and vulnerable to fungi such as snow mold. Cutting grass too short is equally bad because it shortens the root system - the root depth is proportional to the cutting height and prevents the ability of the lawn to withstand cold and dryness in winter. Regular mowing also gets rid of pesky leaves, cuts them and leaves behind a soil-enhancing mulch.

3. Continue watering.

Frith says people tend to stop watering in the fall as the weather gets cold. Lar They think nature will do things for them, or he says. While it is true that there is more rain, more dew and less evaporation at this time of year, this may not be enough to keep the grass roots juicy and healthy in the winter. If your lawn does not receive at least an inch of water per week - the best way to follow a simple rain gauge - then run the sprinklers or irrigation system until the end of October. Until then you will want to remove hoses and flush the irrigation system to prevent frozen pipes and plugs.

4. Loosen the soil.

According to Frith, regular ventilation - every few years, prevents the soil from being compacted and covered with thatch, and a thick layer of roots, stems and debris that prevents water, oxygen and nutrients from reaching the soil. A core aerator corrects both problems by drilling holes in that hole and pulling the earth plug up. "It is a good idea to ventilate a lawn just before fertilization," says Frith. "All these holes in your lawn will allow the manure to reach the roots that it can do best."

5. Add fertilizer.

Just as grass roots need water to last in winter, they also benefit from a shot of plant sugars that protect the roots against frost and give energy to the whole plant to spring back in the spring. These sugars are produced by chlorophyll, which is produced by the grass in abundance when there is enough nitrogen. Frith therefore recommends a slow release of the slow release granular fertilizer 24-0-10. The figures indicate the weight percent by weight of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, respectively. Potassium is also important because it helps root growth, disease protection, drought tolerance and cold resistance. (A soil test can tell you how much of your lawn really needs it.) However, be careful about spreading fertilizers near the waterways; they are vulnerable to contamination from the second stream. The Grass Doctor's company policy is to provide a 5-meter buffer wherever there is water.

6. Seed spread.

“A dense lawn also provides good protection against weeds, Fr says Frith. It is therefore important to inspect existing lawns. This not only fills fine stains or bare stains, but also allows you to get to know the last, durable, drought-resistant grass. The best time to fall is autumn, because the ground is still warm, the humidity is higher, the nights are cool and the sun is not that hot during the day. But even then, “over-seeding is one of the most challenging lawn care jobs, Fr says Frith. You cannot simply release the seeds on a lawn and wait for them to wait. They must be in full contact with the soil, remain moist until they germinate, and be sufficiently stable before very cold. Renting a split seeder is a better option than broadcasting, but these machines are notorious for tearing the lawn and making your lawn look like a rake. Frith says the Lawn Doctor's special Turf Tamer power seeder, which injects seeds into the soil, is a less damaging option.
