Hey community !

I would like to make wonderful magical paths, moss paths and I cleared the trees for the path,
now need to choose the best covering material that my moss patches will sit on and grow luxuriousfully !

I have seen these beautiful pictures and this link below, but I would like to know, if it would be better to cover using wood chips, and what type, hardwood or hemlock chips

cheers and thanks in advance for your help !

Hi Yan! What biome do you live in? In coastal British Columbia a path like that would grow out of the cedar duff, but where I live now the moss is rare and less lush.

This is located Zone 5a in a forest of maple, beech and yellow birch trees on the bottom of a mountain in Abercorn, Quebec, on the far south of the province 5 minutes of the Vermont, U.S. border
there already is a lot of moss on rocks and dead trees, it's a humid environment, there are water sources coming out of the ground in this area

I guess I will have to test different essence of wood chips and see the results !

Yes where you are, in Yukon it must be more licken than moss ...
cheers and thank you for your response ! I will try cedar in my experiments
