Spring Ornamental Grasses Maintenance

Remember those ornamental grasses that provided such wonderful interest in your landscape last fall? I'll bet they're looking a bit ragged about now. As you do your spring clean up, don't forget to cut back your grasses. If your grasses flopped over last year, leave them a bit longer to help them stand up straighter this year. I often add a waffle type support when the grasses begin to grow for a neater look. Remember to wrap the grasses with twine or a bungee cord before you cut them so it will be easier to haul the bundle to the compost heap or otherwise dispose of them.
