While cottage gardens are remarkably adaptable, somehow a fluffy yard of roses doesn't always work with a more modern architectural design. Grasses, especially those with a mix of colors in their flower heads, make a great, slightly more contemporary substitute.
Using plantings as building blocks doesn’t mean you are restricted to evergreen ground covers or clump-forming grasses. Here we see a planting that is both exuberant and colorful as part of a very contemporary scheme for a modern house.

quickly. Many natural grasses require little pruning and care. Look for non-invasive varieties suited to your climate.
Though most modern landscapes are paired with a contemporary or at least ranch-style house design, you don't need to stick with that. These ornamental grasses work surprisingly well
This Victorian is complemented by a variety of drought-tolerant grasses including blue fescue (Festuca glauca) and feather reed grass (Calamagrostis 'Karl Foerster')

Situating a clump of ornamental grass along a pathway
Situating a clump of ornamental grass along a pathway is a wonderful way to experience the texture of the stalks and the plume. Allowing the grasses to lean over into a walkway gives the walker an even more visceral experience. Just be careful which grasses you choose. Some can have very sharp blades
