Ornamental grasses landscaping can add interest and texture to any yard. There are several ornamental grasses landscaping ideas. First idea, you can grow ornamental grass to cover up fences, especially unsightly ones. Use the taller ornamental grasses, such as pampas grass for this landscaping project. Pampas grass needs little maintenance to keep it looking nice and growing well. Keep pampas grass under control by trimming the tops so it does not grow taller than the fence. Create layers and depth to the grasses around your fence by planting the tallest grasses right up next to the fence and shorter grasses, such as a type of dwarf grass, in front of that. Or you can make ornamental grasses the focus of your landscaping. Prairie grasses work well in areas where many plants cannot grow.

Accent your ornamental grass garden with some evergreen plants, rocks and even low growing shrubs.
