Peat Moss has a variety of uses as a soil amendment, mainly because of its moisture retention properties.
Generally fine to somewhat fibrous in appearance, Peat Moss is actually water repellant until it becomes saturated. This is because of the cell structure of the type of moss used which is harvested from the peat bogs. That same cell structure is what makes it hold water once it has been absorbed. Peat Moss can hold up to 26 times its weight in water.
Use it in the base of a Planter for house plants, or added to an excavation for a tree or shrub. Spread it over your yard as a thin topcoat when over-seeding. The peat moss will be worked into the turf by foot traffic and rain, enriching your soil with nutrients, while enhancing its ability to retain valuable moisture.
