#AtoZ Challenge – G is for Grasses

Grasses can be a beautiful additional to your landscape upgrade. Consider the following benefits of grasses:
  1. Require low maintenance. Once properly planted, grasses become a perennial addition to your landscape and require very little maintenance.
  2. Add privacy. Tall grasses in a clustered grouping can easily screen an unpleasant view.
  3. Provide texture to beds and borders. Ornamental grasses add lovely and distinctive boarders to your landscape. For example, fountaingrass offers soft, mounding features to vibrant blooming plants.
  4. Soften hardscaping. Grasses mellow the strong features of walls and pavings to make them look less cold and more inviting.
  5. Dress up decks and patios. Placing ornamental grasses in beautiful pots and vases is an easy way to add a vibrant zest to your patio or deck.
  6. Accent a garden. Ornamental grasses are a wonderful tool to make your garden a work of art.
  7. Create lovely edges. Grasses create flowing, natural borders to walks and pathways.
  8. Cover bare ground. If you have a piece of land that is difficult to use, plant grasses for a natural, covered look.
