What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Your Garden: High Design the Easy Way
Movement. The repetition of a single plant species, like these grasses, is best appreciated on a windy day. It can appear as if the individual plants have merged to form a single unit as they sway and bend in unison with the breeze.
Ornamental grasses are a somewhat acquired taste, and not everyone is a fan. However, they are a beautiful source of texture in the garden and offer a wide range of choices. Even if you don't like ornamental grasses, how could you not run your fingers along the edges of this Japanese silver grass as you walk down this path?
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Natural Garden Style
A mass planting of grasses flanking an unusual walkway fills a long space. It reminds me of walking down to the beach, but with a far more interesting boardwalk than you'll find at most public parks.
Not all planting edges need to be low. The stately lines of tall Miscanthus sinensis here show us what a dramatic effect really tall edging plants can create. Here they are used to define the path edge, becoming almost sculptural in form.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Design a Great Garden on a Sloped Lot
Consider a boardwalk. A boardwalk creates a unique experience with little impact on the land, since it carries visitors over and through the space. Construction is similar to that of a deck. A boardwalk can spark a relaxed and adventurous experience for the garden visitor, especially when it traverses a forest or a mass planting of ornamental grasses, such as this maiden grass (Miscanthus sp, USDA zones 5 to 9).
