What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Relish the Romance of a Slovenian Garden
Cool, green and filled with plants. It's a look I'll never tire of.
Grasses don't have be allowed to grow naturally to introduce a feeling of new ruralism into the garden. This rough-cut lawn brings the feeling of a pasture right up to the walls of the house, while seminaturalistic plantings meander under the trees beyond.
The perennial border popularized in Victorian gardens was labor intensive and very seasonal, requiring a great amount of horticultural skill to create a stunning kaleidoscope of summer color. Garden designer Gertrude Jekyll included intricate, colorful borders in many of her Arts and Crafts–style gardens. Maintaining these borders required splitting the perennial plants and replanting every three to four years to maintain their vigor, staking and tying to keep plants in order, and deadheading and weeding throughout the season to keep the border tidy. The design of the perennial meadow has changed the way we interact with the plantings. Whereas the herbaceous border was created as a focal point, or a feature to be viewed, rather like a painting, the perennial meadow takes its form from the prairie style, where we are surrounded by the plantings or are led through them by pathways. The perennial meadow gives us the opportunity to use a wide range of plants and grasses to create a stylized version of a traditional meadow that perhaps has nostalgic resonance with our past.

Modern perennial meadows are a mixture of colorful perennial plants and grasses that are planted in groups and drifts to create plantings in a naturalistic style, using a restricted planting palette and plants that happily grow together to form a stable community.

So this is just a starting point. I like the clumping nature of these plants together. The trick is to regularly (say 4 times a year) cut back things to keep them separated and less wild looking
