Expert grass breeders reveal the amazing diversity of ornamental grasses in this beautifully illustrated book. Gardeners are shown how grasses, unlike other plants, offer texture, shape, color, movement, and even sound to create a dramatic and calming effect in any landscape design. Grass forms and uses are detailed, terminology is explained, and proper grass maintenance and care are outlined. Gardeners also learn about how to get the most out of grasses in the summer, fall, and winter seasons. One hundred different grasses are shown and described in the "Grasses at a Glance" section, and simple garden plans show how easily grasses can be placed in gardens and landscapes.

Grass Scapes features:

  • more than 100 grasses in the at-a-glance section
  • information on the special features, shape and size of each grass
  • simple garden plans
  • over 100 colour photographs
  • a section of favorite native grasses
