I love moss but

> moss lawn can apparently absorb as much carbon as 275 mature trees

Where does it put it all? A tree takes the CO2 and water and produces starch and fiber that makes a huge tree. Moss is just ... moss. Where is all the mass?

the moss mass

I find the claim highly suspect.

@clacke @clipclopboom me too; it's clearly from curbed.com/2017/6/28/15885436/ which is not a lawn, and I can't find anything to back up that number

(also the website of that product does not even mention c02)


@clacke @clipclopboom did find this which probably has some real numbers nature.com/articles/ngeo1486

I have a small moss lawn btw, with blueberry bushes growing in it, very nice spot
