Using Ornamental Grasses for the Winter
We’ve reaching mid-December, and for many of you, landscaping has become something of a secondary chore for your lawn. Keep in mind that even during the winter season, it’s never a bad idea to keep your lawn pristine.
If you want to have the beautiful colors of spring during the cold seasons, there are nurseries that carry year-round flowers. Feel free to pick up some of them and plant them in your yard. You’ll have the neighbors giving compliments and asking all kinds of questions.
Some green-thumb experts like to suggest using ornamental grasses during this time. Ornamental grasses offer just enough color and appeal to make people look twice at your lawn – especially during the winter. These grasses are virtually pest-free and basically adapt to the ever-changing conditions of the state with proper care (watering, pruning, fertilizing, etc.).
There are two kinds of ornamental grasses – cool-temperature grass and warm-temperature grass. Among the many kinds of cool-temperature grasses are fescues, bent grass, autumn moor grass, blue oat grass and Bermuda grass.
