The tall, clumping grass is Muhlenbergia rigens...very easy to grow a bunch of this from a $4 seed packet (find it from an online seed source) and the lower, more buff colored stuff is the Mexican Feather Grass, aka Nassella (or sometimes Stipa) tennuissima.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Wild Gardens Bring Excitement and Beauty to Landscapes
Even in the arid landscape of Texas, plants can be grown with little water. These drifts of grasses are bold and simple. Like so many of these successful gardens, the focus is on composition, textures and durability, not just colorful blooms.
