Stumpery filled w/ ferns & a dispersion of moss along the ground. The moss garden itself contains moss rocks, rotten logs, & an assortment of woodland perennials, naturally dissipated throughout for a natural unkempt look.

Stumpery on Vashon Island - Walt Riehl built a metal armature to support the stumps that line the garden's tunnel entry.
Across from the fernery is a stumpery. No joking. A stumpery is a pile of stumps. Prince Charles has one at Highgrove. First created in the mid-1800s during the British Romantic Movement, an artistic pile of stumps has its voids and pockets filled with leaf mold and soil where one grows ferns.
