In the landscape above, I love how ‘Grace’ comes off as a subtle accent in the landscape as well as a showstopping focal point along the staircase. Note how well the color and texture work with the other vegetation and concrete entry wall. It's an excellent choice for modern-architecture lovers still looking for a loose and inviting landscape.
