What Houzz contributors are saying:

Meet the stars. This easy-care design is all about layering. A soft ornamental grass provides height and establishes the framework for the combination. The wispy seed heads add to its unabashedly romantic appeal. This photo features Mexican feather grass, but alternatives include pink muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris) or the herbaceous 'Karley Rose' fountain grass (Pennisetum orientale 'Karley Rose'), a fountain grass cultivar that sets seed sparingly and is not considered invasive. (Mexican feather grass can be invasive in some areas; consult your local cooperative extension or county extension office before planting.) Such fine texture needs something solid to balance it, and the bold, succulent foliage and flowers of sedum 'Autumn Joy' (Sedum 'Herbstfreude') do this perfectly. This mounding perennial is covered with flat clusters of pink flowers all summer, their hue enhancing the delicate pink tones of the tan grass.To complete the picture, a daisy-studded carpet adds just the right amount of sparkle. The tiny white and pink flowers of the Mexican fleabane daisy (Erigeron karvinskianus 'Profusion') bloom steadily all summer long, highlighting the pretty monochromatic color scheme.

This is some of the look I'm going for in my back yard (and I think I'd like to rework the front yard to be more like this too. In fact, I'd like to remove 90% of the grass in the front yard so it's less maintenance! And this combo is something we can do here in our climate and weather w/o too much trouble.

The combo of sedum, erigeron, and grasses is gorgeous. I don't use this particular grass as it is quite invasive. Blue Oat grass, Deer Grass, or Pink Muhly grass would work.
