Outdoor Landscaping With Ornamental Grasses
Landscaping with ornamental grasses are becoming extremely popular in low maintenance landscapes as a way to add beauty and color without a great deal of hard work in the yards. The right grasses can provide an eye-pleasing backdrop and a buffer between your shrubs and a fence or wall. They can compliment and enhance the shape and color of your plantings, and many can provide attractive greenery long into the winter when there is little else to attract the eye. There are several ideas of landscaping with ornamental grasses. For example, use ornamental grasses as accents to landscaping you already have. Plant some ornamental grass in locations where you may have pulled out dead plants and now have a definite hole in the garden. Use ornamental grasses, such as bamboo, at the corners to frame porches, patios and decks. Use grasses in the landscaping around your mailbox for a nice looking but easy-to-maintain landscaped area.
