Welcome to my blog. My name is Sarah, and right now, I can see my favourite tree from my window. A few years ago, it was ailing, but I learned everything I could about tree health and nurtured her back to abundance. In this blog, I plan to write all about tree care, from the basics you can do on your own to knowing when to call a professional. My love of trees grew out of my love for gardening and landscaping, and I may write about those topics as well. I hope that you like my blog and that it inspires you. Thanks for reading!

Moss is an extremely hardy plant. Unlike most other plants, moss does not rely on a root system, and it can grow in almost any environment. In fact, moss is so resilient that it even grows in Antarctica! If your lawn seems to be fighting a losing battle with moss then, the environment is to blame—not the moss. Although moss does grow in areas where there are no trees, such as in soil with poor drainage or high acidity, mature trees also create moss-friendly conditions.

These tips will help give your native trees the best chance at thriving in your back garden.
