What is the other grass in the foreground? - Looks like some kind of carex.

All of the green grass is Festuca rubra and the red is Imperata cylindrica 'Red Barron' ('Rubra')

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Perhaps you want to try a twist on the classic spring bulb fairy circle. Plant blood grass in a circle within a planting of other low grasses. The grass will emerge green at first, then surprise with a circle of red as it grows and darkens. By fall, you will have a flaming circle of red.
