Ornamental Grass Care

April 21st, 2021

'Tis the season for cutting back your ornamental grasses! This time in April is a perfect time to start cutting them. We wait this long as the top of the grass will catch moisture during the winter for the plant as well as insulate the crown of the plant during the winter months. You will want to cut the grass as close to the ground as you can without getting into the dirt. In return, this will give your grasses more longevity. Don’t worry if they have started to grow new blades, cutting them down for this practice is healthy for the plant!
