Planting Native Grasses

Planting native grasses isn’t just a great way to enhance the appearance of your landscaping design. It can also be a great way to cut costs, from your water bill to how much material you buy for the purposes of maintaining your property. These plants vary across regions and ecological zones, and come in a variety of heights and girths that you can utilize to inexpensively landscape your yard. While you’ll want to conduct a bit of research on your own to determine which grasses will suite your growing zone best, plants such as feather or bunch grasses are beautiful year round in many locales. The best time to plant for most species is early spring.

Modern lawns are known as “true deserts” to many horticultural and botanical experts. This is because they often consist of a single species of plant, uniform in height, and lacking in forage or concealment for beneficial fauna. What they do attract are many insect species that we consider pests, which can then migrate to other planting beds and feast on flowers or vegetables. However, when you plant native grasses, they come with immunities to native predators. They can often give the same beauty as a traditional lawn, with added benefits. Planting a variety of these species often also helps you create a multi-layered tapestry of ecological niches for fauna that will also help keep the pests at bay.

In ecological zones that are naturally predisposed to a wide variety of grasses, such as the Great Plains where vast expanses of these species still exist, bunch grasses that can grow up to three feet tall are quite popular. In more exposed regions, such as these and the deserts of the Southwest, native grasses also offer protection and shelter to a plenitude of lovely birds and small mammals.

Grasses are a great way of adding interest spots in the landscape or garden. They can make the ordinary landscape into the extraordinary one. There are many sizes and types of grasses available on our website to take advantage of. Many of these can be used as accent selections and are quite stunning.
