I quite like how they have articulated the rockery to mimic a natural stone legging (too bad about the grasses - to one dimensional)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

How to use it. The dwarf fountain grass 'Hameln' is effective when used as a low-facing plant in a mixed border with heleniums, purple salvia, and willow bluestar (Amsonia spp.). Here it's been combined with tall feather reed grass to accent a stone wall. Both catch the late afternoon light in a delightful way and look especially good in October with chokeberry and Virginia sweetspire.Use for erosion control on slopes to mitigate runoff. Fountain grass also makes a good choice for naturalistic meadows and sweeps where low maintenance is desired.
