Now is the time to cut down deciduous grasses that have been waving merrily all winter with their bright hay colours. Cutting all the foliage down down gives the new foliage space to grow.

Incorporating grasses into a garden is a relatively new concept though the first recording of an ornamental grass is as early as 1750.

I will be posting lots more pictures of grasses this year because I love them. They are such an antidote to modern life -softening up our concrete and screen-buzzed eyes with their gentle movement and lush, low maintenance sprays. -and reminding us of mesmerising childhood memories of the countryside and something wild beyond our routines.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
