Hello everyone, ever mindful that I'm getting older, I'm trying to make my garden easier to look after both for me and perhaps a gardener in the future. I'd like to create a grass garden and wondered if anyone had any ideas and tips for me. The garden faces west and is fairly sheltered.



I love Fountain Grass. There is one called 'Fireworks' that has a lot of wow. Even the plainer varieties look nice as well. It's grass that never needs mowing. It grows in a clump so it's non invasive. Brings color & movement and flood control. Another one I really like is Black Mondo Grass. You can use both for a real eye catching display.

Julia, try Knoll Gardens for information, help and advice on creating a grass garden. Really excellent advice to be had.

Thanks Paul, I took a look online and I'll definitely be adding this to my possibilities.

Thank you Shirley, I wish they were nearer as I'd love to visit the gardens...when they re-open. Meanwhile I'll try dropping them an email.
