Planted daffodils in and along the edge of the lawn in Autumn, I now want to remove the lawn to make a narrow (1ft) border of grasses. This is to allow the daffodils to be disguised as they die back amongst the grasses. I want 'knee high' grass to make it fun for the children to jump over.
This is how it looks now, approx 4.5 metres (right hand side)
This is a grass I want to use (i don't have the name) and will split it.
I have also ordered Hordeum jubatum seeds, unfortunately an annual but will look fabulous!
Q - I'm thinking of alternating these two grasses in rows of 3 or 4 each then the other. Or would it be better to have a full row of each, with the hordeum next to the path and the 'other' behind it? I'm in no great hurry and can wait until next year for the great picture to unravel.
Q - will the seeds from the hordeum be a nuisance getting into the path etc or will it be manageable? The seeds should arrive any day now and the instructions say it's ok to sow in May but it's on the late side, should I leave these till next year?
Q - Any one know the name of the grass I already have? It turns (slightly) red at times. Any other suggestions without having to spend lots, maybe another grass which I could buy one of and split?
Thanks , and sorry for all the questions.
