10. GrassesLike reeds, grasses are planted in the minimalist garden for their grace and softness, contrasting vividly with walls, fences, boardwalks and other built structures. And like reeds again, they should be planted in large groups for the best effect, with few other plants around to compete for attention. Most grasses prefer well-drained soil and plenty of sun, but there are some, such as the New Zealand natives Carex secta and Carex virgata, that will grow in quite wet ground. Tip: Some of best low-maintenance grasses around are those from the Australian Lomandra genus.Your turnWhat have you planted in your minimalist garden?
