Clean-up the Spring Garden – Cutting back the Ornamental Grasses

need to have Ornamental Grasses trimmed back once per year!

 

Ornamental grasses are a favorite in ’s …and for good reason.  They provide beauty throughout the year with relatively little maintenance.  The one "chore” required in order to keep them looking their best is that they need to be cut back each so that the new growth can grow and the old stuff can be composted.  If you leave the old and stems – The grasses will still grow and the old will slowly fall off and spread themselves around your yard!

This video shows a few hints when you are cutting down the grasses in your yard.

 

 

 

 

There are a few things I wish I would have shown more clearly on the video.  First – what the grasses looked like once they were cut down.  I like to cut them about 6” off the ground.    They should look like this.
