The Hovel is Nekked

My house is hideous! Seriously, I've been in prettier cell blocks...

The structure is cement block with siding on all but the back. I'm going to re-paint the back wall and I've begun my "poor man's patio". I've just made up a batch of "moss" with the intention of painting it on the chunks of concrete I've positioned as "walls" around the flower/veg garden area. But I came across this:

and am wondering if anyone has tried moss graffito ? It would certainly smarten up that oogly wall.

Apparently! I came across a guerilla gardening site with a vid posted by some skateboarder dudes who did a wall in Toronto. *I know, I know... Toronto doesn't get THAT cold*. The "real North" ~ who knows? If you have moss where you live it should adapt to vertical with a little care.

That's really neat, 3xm. I did laugh at the Mown a Lisa, which wouldn't last long once the grass starting growing again, but using moss in an artistic way is a great idea.

Yup it sure is! many of the recipes involve differing ingredients. I'm wondering if one is more successful than others in establishing and promoting growth.
