The Elevation Grass Collection was installed in 2021 and is already one of the most popular of our gardens.   

This garden showcases ornamental grasses in a variety of sizes, colors, shapes, and bloom times. This garden also includes decorative boulders. Some of the varieties on display include several species of Bluestem, 'Sea Urchin' Fescue, Pink Muhly Grass, Indian Grass, and Switchgrass. We hope local homeowners will draw inspiration from these underutilized and water-wise grasses.

Once completed, this garden will create a beautifully finished continuous transition between the Crevice Garden, the Mountain Thyme Sundial, and the Cindy Smart Miniature Tree Garden.
