Moss gardening?

Moss gardening?

Does anyone have experience with moss gardening? I already know about the stinky moss-and-buttermilk mixture to get moss to grow on concrete, bricks, etc. But how do you get moss to grow on bare ground? What type of soil is best? Are there amendments I should add? I tried transplanting moss from other areas of my garden to the area in question and it dried up and died. What did I do wrong?
