Ornamental Grasses

For the gardener looking for carefree plants which are not only asthetically pleasing but also provide movement, texture and even privacy to the landscape the Ornamental Grass cant be beat. Theres no need to get the noisy lawn mower out to keep these looking their best and you can forget about dreading invasions of grubs and moles, fertilizing, removing thatch, continual watering and fussing about dandelions and other weeds. Once planted these lovely fussfree Ornamental Grasses take care of themselves with liitle help from you. Merely give them a haircut come spring and they do the rest.

Browse through The Ornamental Grass Zone and you may be surprised to see how many ways you can use these lovely perennials in your own yard.

If you are thinking ornamental grasses are all the same think again. For something out of a Dr. Suess book try Juncus Big Twister Grass . This wild and funky little perennial will be a show stopper in any garden.

It also makes a yummy and soothing tea good for the belly ache. Who would have thought an ornamental grass could find its way to your medicinal herb garden?

If you are tired of the same old chainlink or stockade fence try going organic. Cant get more organic than a fence using not stone, wood nor metal but instead real live gracefully swaying Ornamental Grasses. Large Ornemental Grasses are perfect for separating garden rooms within the landscape, too.

A large Purple Moor grass or Miscanthus sinensis when planted close together so their graceful leaves just touch for a solid wall would make a barrier between you and whatever you want to keep out of your space. Create a hidden spot only you know about encircling it with Pampas Grass just like Mary Lennox of The Secret Garden . Merely push aside the rustling foliage and step into your own private world away from all others.

So what are you waiting for? Get rid of that ugly immoveable, lifeless fence and plant a fence with graceful movement , alive and vibrant. Your landscape never looked so inviting.
