Thank you for reporting this. Undo

The tall grasses on the left and right are miscanthus varieties --- an exotic invasive. They are threatening our natural areas in MD. I'd advise against planting these.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
While cottage gardens are remarkably adaptable, somehow a fluffy yard of roses doesn't always work with a more modern architectural design. Grasses, especially those with a mix of colors in their flower heads, make a great, slightly more contemporary substitute.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Take Back Your Front Yard: 8 Ways to Make It Social
Add a privacy screen. While you want your front yard to be more open and friendlier, you still want to balance that with a bit of privacy. After all, no one really wants to be on stage or display, do they? There are ways to create some friendly privacy so that your message is still one of, "Hello, neighbor!" and not that you've built a stockade. Try some soft plantings near the street or sidewalk, and aim to have the overall height of these beds hover around the waist or the chest. Anything taller, with the exception of an occasional small tree, will be too overpowering and send the message to keep out.

This is cottage style---way to many plants here don't worry about that. I plan on using shrub border to create a low maintenance plan. but the style of massing shrubs together in a overlapping pattern to creat interest and depth is a valid one.
