Perennial Prairie Grasses Make this Composition Sing
This view shows how well the individual raised planters break up the base of the large wood building wall into glimpses of open space or views through the grass flower spikes. The metallic panel walls are treated differently, perhaps due to their resilience when plants grow right up to the foundation. Here blue grama, one of the most common local perennial prairie grasses is shorter and well suited for a large swath beneath the trees. It's the fine textured appeal of grasses that makes this composition sing; with each component standing out in sharp focus.
