Q.How much vertical space should I allow for moss between stones?

I am having stones installed on a path through the woods from my house to pool area. Eventually I want to grow moss between the stones as it’s a very shady area. How much should I leave the stones protuding from the ground so I will have vertical space for the moss?

It would depend on the height of the moss you will be using. In the example below, the moss grows 2 inches. I would think just about 1/2 inch would be suitable in paver height.
