Generally, most types prefer a sunny spot, but will tolerate partial shade. Their tolerance of soil types will differ depending on the type of grass – some will do better in well-drained soil whilst others will happily grow in poorly drained spots.
If the grass you choose grows best in well-drained, dry soil prepare the spot by digging in some horticultural grit to aid drainage before planting and well rotted organic matter, especially if your soil is clay based.
There is an abundance to choose from, meaning there’s a grass to suit your space. Whether you are looking to fill a container with elegant texture, or for grasses to surround your garden pond.
They look great in gravel gardens, courtyards, and cottage gardens, as well as wildlife gardens and prairie planting.
