I love grass no. 2

I love the simple drama of this Crescent Beach garden; there's only, as far as I can tell, three types of plants used here. I could never be that restrained. Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus' (Maiden grass) is in the background, Pennisetum villosum (Feathertop) is in the mid-ground, and there's some sort of bamboo in the foreground. The plantings suit the seaside community and the house they surround.

See how the bamboo seems to grow right out of the pavers on the front drive? And the use of white sand to further blend the bamboo in with the pavers? Genius.
