Grasses, and the grass-like rushes and sedges, make an excellent addition to any garden.  True grasses, including ornamental grasses and bamboos, generally prefer sunny well drained spots.  Rushes and sedges have similar strap like leaves to grasses, but are a different botanical family.  They usually prefer damper conditions than grasses and some will happily grow in shade.
