Do You Have A Design Project We Can Help With?
Preserved Moss Artwork
Over the past 15 years as one of San Diego’s premier, interior plantscape companies, we have seen the industry
evolve. We take pride in bringing the most contemporary design trends to our clients. It makes perfect sense that
we would be one of the first local plant companies to carry a wide range of plant wall systems, including the
newest trend, preserved moss walls. This type of art integrates preserved moss to create a vibrant and texturally
interesting twist on live walls. It is a conversation piece that allows architects, designers, property managers, and
residential clients to bring the beauty of nature indoors in a clean and cultured manner. Next time you are looking
for a cutting edge and nearly maintenance free way to “green” up your lobby or building space, think about
adding a stunning piece of preserved moss artwork.
What is Preserved Moss?
Preserved moss is 100% natural moss that is no longer alive, but has been carefully preserved for decorative purposes through an eco-friendly process. The process is completely non-toxic and preserves its appearance, freshness and scent for many years, with no need of soil, water or sunlight. No ecological damage occurs during chemical preservation and the moss is heat-treated for safe decorative purposes.
Advantages of Moss Walls
Preserved moss provides the beauty of natural plants and the convenience of artificial plants. You can have quality-looking greenery the whole year in a closed setting.

One of the greatest advantages to preserved moss is its design versatility. It is available in almost any color and can be manipulated to fit custom shapes. This provides businesses a unique branding opportunity to enhance their identities. Our team at Greenleaf IPS is prepared to help your San Diego business stand out from the crowd.

Kumiko Moss Designs
Developed in Japan during the Asuka Era (600-700 AD), Kumiko is a traditional Japanese style of woodwork and continues to be a respected form of artistry to this day. The process involves interconnecting wooden pieces together, without the use of glue, nails, or hardware. The result is a sturdy, intricate pattern that remains in place through pressure alone.
Kumiko is a fundamental part of Japanese architecture and interior design. There is a large variety of patterns used and each design has a meaning that is thought to be a good omen. Our collaboration with Kumiko artisans combines the traditional artform with our preserved moss for a modern-day application. Designs can vary from stand-alone framed pieces to large, preserved moss walls with integrated woodwork. Contact Greenleaf IPS today to try Kumiko in your next moss project!
