The gravel garden at Chanticleer provides a model for effective planting of an open and sunny slope. Gardeners added sand and gravel to the native clay and created a journey down and through a sun-loving medley of perennials, grasses, and herbs. In June, varieties of lavender, thyme, and the Mexican feather grass Nassella tenuissima provide plant structure.
