Creating a dune theme... Using grasses. Zone 6/7
Our swim club is looking to landscape our club using ornamental grasses.
We plan to paint a mural on a wall. Ocean theme. Waves. etc.
The existing shrubs have been removed. (Old yews) Create a dune theme landscape.
Use snow fence for a transition between mural and landscape and plant bed using grasses.
Which grasses would you include such that we do not obstruct the view of the mural, need a minimum amount of moisture/care, and appearance is maximized between memorial and labor day.
I am thinking (so far)
-Fescue (does get ratty in august)
any other low growing grasses that can be planted in mass?
Am I missing anything?
Let me know what you would include.... Check the link below for a pic of our clubhouse.
