Grasses and clumping plants

Grasses and strappy leafed plants are generally herbaceous with the distinctive flowing shape of grasses. They provide vertical interest to the garden and complement the frequently rounded shapes of shrubs. Grasses can be used to:

  • Add privacy – when used in large groupings
  • In containers, to create an accent
  • Soften hardscaping, around pools and edges of pavements
  • Dress up decks and patios
  • Create edging
  • Attract wildlife
  • Cover the ground
  • Grow a meadow
