Indulge a passion for ornamental grasses by creating a prairie- or meadow-style garden. They can be richly planted with native wildflowers or a selection of complementary perennials and self-seeding annuals to create a naturalistic planting effect. Prairie gardens often do best on poor soil, so are a perfect way to plant up banks and other difficult areas. Ideal if you are gardening on a tight budget, too.
