Front Garden, July 2011 Eclectic Landscape, Charlotte

Formerly a problem front yard, I removed all the grass, enlarged the beds, and created a series of ponds and waterfalls on an "unusable" hill.

Hi. That is blue dune lyme grass. It's one of my favorites for its color and texture. In certain parts of the country it can be pretty aggressive, so planting it will depend on your conditions as well as your tolerance for occasionally keeping it in check. It doesn't spread as aggressively for us in my area, I think because of our clay soil. Thanks for the question.

Red Coleus and a blue grass of some sort, GREAT combo, could work in my Round Rock garden!
