Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Central Plains Gardener's March Checklist
Plant grasses for four-season interest. Before you cut down the garden in early March, snowstorms permitting, take one last look to see what you can do to add winter interest next year. One surefire way to improve four seasons of interest is by using ornamental grasses. Need quick height in a sculptural location? Think big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) or Indian grass (Sorghastrum nutans). Want to mask the unsightly lower bare stems of flowering perennials? Think sideoats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula) or prairie dropseed (Sporobulos heterolepsis). These grasses provide cover and nesting materials for birds, often have nice fall color and make for a stunning winter garden.

Cunningham was hired after the driveway had already been installed. "Because the driveway was basically a straight line from the road to the house, I added a grove of sugar maples to create a playful arrival sequence," he says. "It's also very common to see beautiful double allées of sugar maples lining driveways in the area, so this is a reinterpretation of that historical local element." "This region is blanketed in fog about a third of the time, so I also chose the maple trees because of their interesting silhouettes," says Cunningham. In addition, sugar maple leaves turn fiery red in the fall.
