School of Grasses
Hoffman Nursery grasses went to school this week, donating more than 6000 grasses to a local Montessori school. The newly installed landscape is ripe with possibility.Read Post
Back in May, we posted about grasses at the Montessori Children’s House of Durham. Hoffman Nursery donated more than 6000 grasses for their new site. Go back to the original post to read about the project and see what it looked like at installation.
Now that fall is here, the grasses are blooming and starting to fill in the space. They’ll look even better with another another season of growth. The Head of School, Happy Sayre-McCord, says the kids and parents love the grasses—especially the Pink Muhly.
The plants were installed in May near the end of the school year. The students were thrilled to see how much the plants had grown over the season. They especially enjoyed seeing the blooms emerge. The grasses capture every breath of wind and make it a very dynamic landscape.
The grounds have been well maintained, so weeds haven’t been a big problem. Once the plantings fill in more, less maintenance will be required to keep it weed free.
As before, we’ll check in again on how this exciting landscape is progressing.
