Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Arrives as young plant
I was excited to plant Irish Moss around the stepping stones in my garden. After a few days they started to turn brown, some looked as if they had died. My daughter thinks it may be due to the shock of being transplanted, so my fingers are crossed they'll still be ok.
I have been slowly working on a no-mow, pollinator friendly, and neighbor approved lawn for a long time. I started using Irish Moss to accomplish the "lawn" part of this project a couple of years ago. I have ordered plugs and seeds and the process is slow but taking shape. I decided to give this a shot as the 1 quart size seemed appealing. I was blown away. They arrived very quickly and we're of highest quality and health. I now feel like this project will only take a couple more years instead of at least 5. These are planted and the size of the plugs I paid a similar price for a year and a half ago. This will shave a lot of time off of my plans and will fill in and allow me to take plugs a full year sooner than planned.
Trying several types of plants to see what does well in various locations in the yard. So far, this is doing very well.
It arrived really quickly “, and in great condition, I’ve already planted it and it’s been doing great so far.”
On October 14th they were looking great, but they are starting to turn brown. Im not sure what is going on. I hope they don't all die.
