Make the Moss of your Wall Space

February 22, 2018

Described as a small flowerless plant and often associated with scarifying the lawn, given these associations, moss may not be your first choice of material to decorate your office. However, moss is currently extremely popular within office interior design, from simple moss frames in receptions, to moss panels integrated into furniture and company logos.

Aside from the stunning visual effect it can produce, moss is a popular choice due to the lack of ongoing maintenance required. The moss itself is preserved and will therefore provide a natural look without continuing to grow and only requires a light dusting from time to time.

When it comes to shape and size of design, the options are almost limitless using moss. At GP Plantscape, we can buy frames or have them custom made to any shape or size, to accommodate the moss. Once we have the frame, a design is drawn which illustrates the pattern of the textures and colours to be created. By using different types of mosses, we can create different textures in the design construction.

Bun Moss

Shaped like a bun, it has a raised appearance and is completely natural in its shape and size.

Flat Moss 

Is a flat sheet of moss available in various sizes.

Colour and shade can also be incorporated to create the desired effect. Preserved moss can come in its natural colour, but many are died in various shades of green to improve the intensity of that colour. Flat moss is also available in a variety of alternative bright colours.

The process then involves painstakingly fixing the moss to the frame to create the unique design with amazing results.


In the gallery below are some examples of moss features recently installed by GP Plantscape.

Whilst the moss is easy to maintain, there are some considerations to be mindful of when installing your moss display. Being preserved, it does not take kindly to overly humid environments and consequently should not be exposed to water, least it will be liable to mold. So it’s indoors only for moss displays.
