We visit with University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners Ben W. Huntley and Carolyn Reppy to learn how they care for the Ornamental Grass Garden at the Jackson County Extension Office in Murphysboro, Illinois. The garden was started seven years ago thanks to a donation from a retired Lewis and Clark Community College researcher and features grasses of all sizes and colors. Huntley and Reppy explain that ornamental grasses are low maintenance and are becoming a popular landscaping alternative for homeowners' front and back yards. “I think the Ornamental Grass Garden is primarily a resource for people to observe and get an idea of which type of ornamental grasses might be suitable for their landscape,” said Huntley.
