What type of grass is this? - I live in Lake Tahoe. We have issues with rabbits and our dog's urine ruining the grass. We've tried everything. Thinking of options and the natural, whispy lawn looks intriguing.

Each plant in this simple palette makes an impact in a subtle, naturalized way. Bold romantic drifts of strong perennials keep this composition intact with minimal management. The kids can ride their bikes through the switchgrass (Panicum) or create openings to hide out in with little worry from the garden designer about damage.

Have you heard of nature deficit disorder? I know — it sounds silly at first, but I believe it's real. I take my college classes outside, and my classmates can't identify the call of a robin or blue jay, both quite common birds, let alone an oak tree. Did you know that the famous nature photographer Ansel Adams had ADHD? Do you know how he eased it? Maybe we all should get outside and photograph lovely natural vistas more often.
