Massive Miscanthus

Hey Sandy,
I think I have seen enough of your yard to figure that you have lots of border gardens with a big green lawn in the center? Am I correct? Do you have lots of hedges too? All your photos are beautiful and I am inspired.
I'd love a post from you with maybe a diagram of your yard-pushy 'ain't' I?

Hi Dianne. Maybe I'll try and get on my roof to take an aerial shot...

P.S. That's exactly what I have. My lawn area is actually not that large for the size of my yard. My borders are quite wide. I have boxwood hedges on the right hand side of my gardens. I find that it draws your eye around the garden. It looks cool with snow on it in the winter too. Like a large S. It is important to me that my garden looks good in four seasons.

Did you climb up on the roof yet? I am waiting for that picture, too!

I was going to climb up there tonight but it started to rain. Maybe tomorrow.

Just a word about the miscanthus. It gets labeled "invasive" on some lists but I heard a very knowledgeable horticulturist say that "Morning Light," the most popular, does not spread.

This year I will be digging up all my Micanthus and dividing them. A large job I'm sure. I have planted a few in large black plastic pots sunk in the ground. If I have a problem with it I will do this to all of them. Now that I have them and get so much impact from them I don't want to live without them. I have Morning Light at my work garden and it is lovely. I don't have it in my garden because I had a hard time finding it and was impatient.
