What Is Preserved Moss?
Preserved moss is natural moss that is no longer alive, but has been conserved using a method from the floral industry that replaces the product’s moisture with oils to make it softer, cleaner, and longer-lasting.
It maintains the look and feel of moss—including the intricate details, textures, and vibrant colors of live plants. Once preserved, our moss walls maintain their quality. They don’t grow, but they remain a piece of art to enjoy long-term!
What is Preserved Moss Art?
Moss art is a unique way to bring the forest indoors. The vibrant greens and rich textures of real moss create a one-of-a-kind piece of art and breathe life into your home, office, or commercial space.
Our original moss designs are created with preserved moss or lichen. Preserved plants and flowers can also add color, texture, and energy.
Each piece is custom made and creates an artistic connection to nature. The average American spends 90% of their time indoors (EPA). That means missing out on fresh air, access to natural materials, and the mental and physical health benefits from time spent outdoors, so we decided to bring the outdoors to you.
Biophilic design has been shown to improve mood and productivity. Adding plants to your space can create a feeling of calm and promote happiness, while also simply making the atmosphere feel more pleasant.
Moss wall art is a low-maintenance, visually interesting way to add natural materials, plants, and life to your space. We work with your budget and vision to create the perfect plantscape for your space!
How is Great GrowIN's moss art created?
To begin the design process, our team will take the time to learn about your vision and evaluate your environment. Our goal is to choose a design that will perfectly fit your space.
Next, our installation team will assess your space in person to ensure your moss art will hang securely. We’ll ensure the sizing is correct and ideal for your needs and evaluate the impact your art will have when it’s complete.
Finally, your vision comes to life! In this phase we collaborate with you to select colors, style and size of containers, and create a moss design that truly fits your space.
What Kinds of Designs are Available?
Our goal is to create a design that perfectly fits your space. Whether you’re looking for an entire wall of preserved moss, a branded moss piece, or a totally unique design, we’ll bring your vision to life.
We offer size options ranging from small pieces that add a touch of green to your space, to artwork that encompasses your entire wall. Your design can incorporate a wide variety of shapes, including your company logo.

Are Moss Walls Really Maintenance Free?
Yes! Caring for preserved moss is easy.
Our moss designs are maintenance-free. These formerly living plants are preserved with organic compounds that protect the feel, texture, look and color of moss and plants. A chemical compound replaces the water content in the plant, preventing decay. In some cases, dye is used to imitate the vibrant color of the moss.
No green thumb? No Problem.
Because they are preserved, these designs don’t require any upkeep. There’s no need for irrigation infrastructure or grow lamps—your artwork can hang wherever you need it without additional installations.
You may want to dust your piece occasionally—we recommend using compressed air, like you would for your computer. Otherwise, you can simply enjoy the beauty each design brings to your space!
Preserved moss art is a great way to bring the outdoors in.
Where is Moss Art used?
Our customers display their moss art in a wide variety of ways! When it comes to our designs, the sky is the limit. Moss designs are an artful way to bring nature into your home—with biophilic design remaining in style and the widespread love of houseplants, a preserved moss design is a great way to bring a touch of green into your living space without extra hassle.
Add your logo!
Your moss art can also display your logo or other company messaging! Moss logos are popular ways for organizations to create interest in a lobby or reception area.
Finally, many commercial spaces, restaurants, and offices use moss artwork to bring the calming elements of agricultural design indoors.
How is a Moss Wall Different from a Living Wall?
Moss walls don’t require the same care as living walls! They are preserved, so they don’t require watering or plumbing. They don’t attract insects, and can be used in more diverse spaces than living walls, since they don’t require light (or grow lamps!).
Moss is ideal for those with nature allergies
Most people with environmental allergies do not have adverse reactions to moss, but preserved moss is no longer alive, and so does not release pollen at all. Because of this, it can be ideal for those with allergies.
Whether you choose a preserved moss design or a living wall will depend on the look you’re going for and the care you’re willing to give your botanical installation. We offer both, and would love to discuss your specific needs.

Q&A About Caring for Preserved Moss Art
Do you have to water moss art?
No! Great GrowIN’s preserved moss art is not made of living plants, so you don’t need to water your piece. It will continue looking fresh and green on it’s own!
Does moss art need sunlight?
No! Your artwork can be placed wherever you want. It is best to be kept out of direct sunlight because the moss could lose its color and turn brown.
Do moss walls attract bugs?
They do not. Because they are not living plants, moss art pieces do not attract bugs.
How long will a moss wall or moss art piece last?
Great GrowIN’s moss designs last for years! The exact length of time depends on the type of moss used. When you order Great GrowIN’s moss art, we’ll choose the materials that best suit your needs. They’re the perfect way to incorporate biophilic design without adding plant maintenance to your to-do list. Since the pieces are preserved, they add life to your space year round.
If you have a black thumb—or struggle keeping plants alive or simply don’t have the time to care for them—preserved moss is an excellent addition to your decor. It brings the energy boosting and mood improvement benefits of plants, without the additional required effort to keep a plant alive.
