    Using this grass is discouraged due to its invasive nature in irrigated areas. If you had an area that was not irrigated, it will probably be ok. Otherewise, it reseeds into every nook and cranny and even neighbors yards. Try native grasses instead.

    How to Select PiecesRelate to existing architecture. A well-chosen piece of art pulls aspects of nearby buildings into the garden, creating harmony and continuity. Study your home for clues that will help you select an appropriate piece of art. What hues are in the home’s brick or stone? Can that blue front door be repeated in a piece of garden art? How about those black downspouts and gutters? A tall and narrow townhouse may call for an art piece that mimics those dimensions. Keep in mind the four parameters of juxtaposition: size, shape, color and texture. Matching two of these four with nearby architecture will form a meaningful and cohesive bond.The piece shown here makes an appropriate connection with the prevailing architecture for several reasons: The sculpture’s incorporated stone speaks to the texture and color of the home’s stucco, its verticality makes a connection to the vertical windows, and the rusted hue mimics the window trim. Additionally, the piece incorporates implied movement, which is repeated in the ornamental grasses.

    The grass sets off the sculpture and grass is easy to maintain.
