Spaghnum Peat Moss

Anonymous added on May 31, 2017 | Answered

As well as mixing into soil, can spaghnum peat moss also be used on top of the soil (not mixed in) to help preserve moisture in the soil as well as preventing weeds from growing?

If you have nothing else to use as mulch, you can use spaghnum peat moss, though it would likely blow away very easily.
It would not work well as a weed deterrent, as it is extremely light weight and weeds will push right through it.
