Meadow Planting


What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to 3 Fuss-Free Ways to Garden
2. Go for the natural look. The less it's supposed to look groomed means less upkeep for you. As always, you want to look for plants that are easier to maintain naturally, in that they require little soil, fertilization, watering, or a certain type of exposure. Try not to choose something that's going to grow or spread quickly. Many natural grasses require little pruning and care. Look for non-invasive varieties suited to your climate.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Modern Garden Style
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 at the back of a traditional San Francisco home and are a nice break from the expected cottage or English garden. The muted colors reflect those found in the city's often foggy natural landscape and create a year-round peaceful retreat.

Blue Avena Grass is a good choice for mountain homes up to 8,500 ft. and is also a great Xeriscape plan. Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Best blue color in dry soils. Tolerates light shade, but does best in full sun locations.
