Japanese gardens also use moss for its flexibility and durability. Moss is able to withstand and stay green even under harsh circumstances, including freezing and dry air. Moss has remained a central item in Japan’s gardens, as it is considered a friendly herb. Moss will also scatter in the garden whether it is surrounded by a building or a body of water.
