Garden Design - a Prairie Planting

Garden Design - a Prairie PlantingGarden Design - a Prairie Planting

Prairie Plantings are fairly new to UK gardens but are becoming increasingly popular. Defined by the use of grasses and wind/drought tolerant plants they are a good option for large exposed gardens where the tall grasses provide height and movement with a wonderful ability to catch the morning and evening sunlight.

  • Costs: mainly plants but in a large garden this can mount up.
  • Maintenance: low
  • Advantages: require little watering, low maintenance and lovely in low light on summer evenings
  • Disadvantages: needs a large area
