A caveat regarding Nasella tenuissima: it reseeds prolifically even if you comb out the seed heads. It is native to southeastern New Mexico and west Texas and is commonly used in Santa Fe and Albuquerque landscaping. Some of us native plant folks are concerned t hat it will escape gardens into our native grasslands. Beware of where you site it!

We use Nasella tennuisima all over the northeast Texas and southeast Oklahoma region. Most nurseries and growers run out around mid summer because so many people love it. I've never had a problem with it becoming invasive; I guess our climates are different enough that it doesn't reseed as well here. Thank you for the responses!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Your Garden: High Design the Easy Way
Modern. If a modern landscape is what you strive for, think of the plant material as just another texture, material, or color to incorporate into your landscape. The linear swaths of green juxtaposed with the industrial concrete walls complete the perfect minimal garden.
More often in contemporary gardens, hardscaping can be the overriding design feature, as with these simple concrete retaining walls.The plantings are used to emphasize the clean lines of the walls. Grasses can be perfect to achieve this. The Festuca grasses used here become low-maintenance ground covers as they grow, requiring minimal irrigation or tending.
