you've done a lovely job!! i especially like how you used the tall grasses to anchor the corners of the house instead of traditional shrubs, it adds a very soft look with a lot of movement. also, what kind of tree is that? i love it and the bark has a lot of interest!

thanks so much for sharing your pics!

jiggreen,

Thanks!

The grasses are Maidenhair, and the tree is a Lacebark Elm. The Elm was actually planted by the original owners when the house was built, I believe, but we love it, too!
