Another recipe, that doesn't use gardening gel

Hmm. It'd take longer to grow, but I bet you could come up with something similar using lichen. And if it worked, it'd grow on much "tougher" substrates and be a *lot* harder to eradicate.

I know, right?! But would a similar recipe work as easily for lichen?

That, I don't know. I'd imagine it'd want a different nutrient mix.

Oooh. I could actually carpet our yard with that. Moss is much nicer to walk on that grass.

would the moss choke out the grass?

Actually, I have always fantasized about that, and part of my yard is moss.

--- It Does Not Need Mowing. ---

(There was a full yard of it near us when I grew up.)

But, it is not fun to sit on, a bit too damp, or to walk on barefoot. But it does look nice, and on warm days it is refreshing to lie on it a little while.

It does, eventually, yes. We had a lovely mostly-moss front lawn at my childhood home. No mowing, no weeding, no nothing. It was wonderful.
