It might seem weird, but grass landscapes are arguably one of the most beautiful landscapes. While the first thing that comes to mind when you hear grass is the unwanted weed that livestock feed ons, arguably, there is more than one type of grass. And, when it comes to landscaping, ornamental grasses are as great as any other landscaping elements. Here are a some top reasons why you should consider landscaping your property with grass:
Grasses can be used in small or big spaces. Due to this flexible nature, they can fit perfectly in your small yard (link to landscaping for small yard article) or balcony spaces. They are also durable and will survive as container plants or plants in pots.
The beautiful thing about ornamental grasses is how using several combinations with other elements can change the appearance of your home. You can use it to decorate your lawn, backyard, or the building itself. The grasses will provide a lot of natural green background, fresh air, and ambiance.
· Dual Functions
Aside from the apparent beauty of the ornamental grasses, they can serve other unique functions like fencing and borders. They are available in various sizes and shapes for different landscape purposes. If you want it to serve as a fence, then you should get tall ornamental grasses, and to design your walkway, you’d need the short ornamental grasses.
Now that you’ve learned why you should consider grasses for your landscaping, here are some ideas to get you started:
- Define Edges: You can design the edge of your walkways, staircases, and pavements with colorful grasses. Some excellent choices for this purpose includes sedges and fountain grasses.
- Create Hedges: You can use tall grasses and shrubs to create hedges along and around your property. With this, you can effectively create privacy and block a view you don’t want people to see.
- Create Visual Appeal: This is an excellent option if you live on a massive property with a large yard (link to landscaping for large yard article). You can adequately cover the mass of land by planting different grass species to take up the space.
