• Drifts of grasses con­nect the gar­den to the wider land­scape be­yond • Grasses and peren­ni­als are used cre­atively in a con­tem­po­rary way • Place grasses where they will light up from sun­shine, es­pe­cially the slant­ing low light of au­tumn • Gra­ham likes to de­sign as a pointil­liste artist would with small dots, us­ing dainty flow­ers among the grasses, to cre­ate a sense of con­trolled riot • Plants are seen as tex­tures with colour, and how they com­bine is the main fo­cus of the de­sign • A wide va­ri­ety of grasses, in a range of parch­ment and bur­nished translu­cent hues, topped with feath­ery seed­heads shim­mer in the slight­est breeze • Colours are bright against the foil of grasses, with splashes of jewel-toned salvias, spires of in­tensely bright or­ange kniphofias and dainty asters draw­ing the eye
