Ornamental Grasses In Borders

 

   Ornamental grasses in borders are attractive, not only for their graceful and delicate flower clusters, but also for their alluring plumes and ornate foliage. Choosing the right grass for the border depends on shade or sun tolerance, water requirements, soil types, and growth or height requirements.

   The type of garden, yard, or landscape desired must be considered carefully when choosing grasses, whether formal or informal, rock, mixed border, or water garden. Ornamental grasses and borders are fantastic for softening landscapes, and can be used as a contrast to plants with bold outlines. They come in a wide range of shapes and subtle shades to suit every garden style.

   Ornamental grasses in borders may attract the eye away from or towards a specific area. This is done by using different grass colors or a wide range of grass heights. With seasonal changes, this provides a focal points for garden planners. Ornamental grasses in borders range from the tall grasses, providing a screen, to the short ornate grasses, that indicate a gardens division from lawn grass.

   Use ornamental grasses in borders with perennials or as a backdrop to borders or other plantings. Virtually the only limit to what we can do with grasses in our gardens is our imagination and our willingness to experiment with new combinations of plants.
