Are you dreaming of adding a beautiful and natural piece of artwork to your home, business, or office? Something that will give the space a calming connection to nature without the need for serious upkeep? Then it’s time to consider a preserved moss installation.
Maybe you’ve already seen a preserved moss display at a luxury spa, a high-end hotel, a classy yoga studio, or even in that trendy new restaurant down the street. Preserved moss installations are popping up all over the country and adding a touch of nature wherever they are found.
What Is Preserved Moss?
As its name implies, preserved moss is moss, the stuff that grows on rocks, tree trunks, and in many of the most beautiful settings in the world. Preserved moss installations are created when moss is picked, dried, preserved and the arranged into a vertical installation.
How Are Preserved Moss Installations Created?
There are numerous ways to create preserved moss installations, and the limitation of what we can do is often only a client’s budget and their imagination. For example, preserved moss can be placed in small, decorative panels to hang on a wall, or they can cover an entire wall in gorgeous and complex patterns. It’s also not uncommon to use preserved moss to spell out simple words, like a business’s name or to make a shape, like a star or heart.
Different mosses can be used to create swirls and whirls of color and to give installations depth and a unique character. In fact, one of the coolest things about interior moss walls is that your installation can be completely personalized to your tastes and the character and style of your location.

Why Choose a Preserved Moss Installation?
You have a lot of choices when it comes to picking artwork and decorative pieces for your home or office, so why choose preserved moss?
We may be biased, but we think that preserved moss adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room. It also connects you with nature, which can have a powerful and positive effect on you, as well as your family members or employees.
According to the University of Michigan, “being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings.” A preserved moss installation can help you feel better, which can help you avoid stress-related illness. Think about how useful this affect could be on your employees. Stress zaps productivity and can even cause expensive sick days and illness.
If you could make your family members or employees feel more relaxed, less anxious, and more motivated just by hanging a beautiful preserved moss installation in your home or office, why wouldn’t you?
