What is the low ornamental grass up front? A type of sesleria??
   Comment   December 12, 2013

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Forgoing a lawn for a planting of short ornamental grasses is an excellent way to maintain a horizontal plane of green without weekly maintenance. Some ornamental grasses are strong enough to walk on, so research before you purchase based on your activity needs.
Houzz added this to Berm
Not all berms have to be flower beds; ornamental grasses planted on a large sloping mound are a contemporary approach to the berm.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to How to Get Your Prairie On
If you just want a lawn replacement, a seeding of buffalo grass or blue grama works great for a 6- to 8-inch cover you can even mow once in a while if you like (but consider letting it grow to form a natural, wavy habit). Prairies in our landscapes don't have to be tall or complex or messy.Great grasses for a new lawn
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 7 Low-Maintenance Lawn Alternatives
Other considerations:Even low-maintenance lawn alternatives need some maintenance: seasonal mowing, supplemental irrigation in times of drought and occasional weeding.Be sure to check with your local homeowner's association before replacing your existing traditional lawn — many areas have requirements and guidelines for what you can do in the front yard.Ensure that your lawn alternative is kept attractive, especially if you live in a neighborhood where your neighbors may not be used to anything except traditional turf.For the lowest maintenance, choose a ground cover that is native to your area. Seek the advice of your county extension office for a list of recommendations.More: Get Along With Less LawnThe Case for Losing the Traditional Lawn
