Ornamental grasses

Whether your garden is wild or contemporary you just cannot avoid grasses. Little by little, the grasses start growing. Here, they give some structure and body. There, they play with the wind and light. And they are always light. Our gardens need them. Never plant a shrub in a flower bed; otherwise, after five years its roots will have taken over everything. To give your border structure, it's a better idea to plant evergreen perennials or grasses for striking graphic effects.

Wind and Light. Thick growing grasses give structure to the garden. They can be planted in open spaces and used ornamentally as a back drop for borders. Tall grasses also have other uses, such as providing biomass or a screen to hide the next-door neighbours!. For all grasses, we wait until the winter to prune them. They are a source of food and shelter for garden fauna and can be enchanting in the oblique light of autumn evenings.

Height greater than one metre

Height less than one metre

Medium height grasses planted among perennials create natural scenes with movement. Planted with autumn-flowering perennials grasses can create very attractive scenes which give structure to a border during the winter
