Landscape Specialties: Grasses

Sustainable Places®, Inc.

There are many types of grasses, with a range of character and size. These cost effective plants enrich a static garden with movement and soothing sound, varied color and form. Combined with flowering plants, in mass, or as a focal point, grasses soften any scene. In Winter, they add a sculptural character to the snowy landscape. Unlike turf used for lawns, ornamental grasses are cut only once a year.
