    Great pics! Very nicely done. As to everyones moss question try using pieces of sandstone in the areas where you want moss to grow with dampness and shade. The sandstones surface is the ideal place to grow. Just transplant a piece of moss that is growing onto the surface and watch it grow just like a chia pet lol.. the sandstone surface is just like that of a clay paver or a clay head. Granite stone will grow moss but it will take a lot longer than sandstone. However the key is shade and moisture.

    I only get moss on my North facing waterfalls with a fair amount of splash and HEAVILY shaded area's with splash. One of my customer's that has the most moss faces north, but has a pretty fair amount of sunlight. It's on sandstone, but I still can't figure that one out.

    Buttermilk and Yogurt work. but you have to mist it regularly to get it to grow.
