Lesson 9: Create an illusion with grassy mounds
The most fetching gardens offer an element of surprise. In this garden, it appears that giant mounds of moss surround a tiny garden shed. A closer look reveals that the humps are actually Manillagrass (Zoysia matrella). The humps are hollow, so when visitors walk across them, they soon fall through. Very amusing…if you happen to be watching from afar!
