big drought resistant grasses (or something else)
so, new house. corner lot, on what is essentially an alley. there is a large section of property-- 75x30 or so that is in the alley right of way. currently just lawn. i want to break up that sight line visually, define the property a bit more.
since the area is in the right of way, trees are not supposed to be planted. everything should have the appearance of being easily taken out.
i was thinking of putting in a few "big grass" islands. BUT HERE IS THE CATCH. i really would prefer to barely water them.
i've never had room for something like miscanthus, so i have no experience with them. do people water them in the summer? any other non woody plants that do a similar thing that are drought friendly?
