How can I grow moss in a large sloped creek area to keep soil from eroding?
Moss generally requires shade and constant moisture to thrive. If this area dries out on occasion, moss may not be the best solution, unless you plan to water it during the dry times. The usual way to start a moss garden is to make a slurry of ground up moss and water or milk, and spray it over the area where you'd like the moss to grow. It must be kept constantly moist until it roots in and begins to spread.
You might also consider planting moisture tolerant groundcovers such as sedges or liriope on this site. Both are low-growing and grasslike in appearance. There are also many broadleaf groundcovers that would adapt to this situation.
