Those of us who garden in a dry climate hardly have it easy when it comes to creating interest in the garden. There are several good dry gardens ideas. One of dry gardens ideas is choosing the best plants. And ornamental grasses can be your best bet. Ornamental grasses are related to the lawn types, but look and grow very differently. Available in various sizes, diminutive to towering, and many colors, all grasses have a naturalistic simplicity and blend beautifully. For instance, combine low growing buffalo grass with deer grass (Muhlenbergia rigens).
