In the Garden

I noticed that some people's flowerbeds look really nice, especially the ornamental grasses, so I asked someone how they achieved this.

Apparently the secret is not to just let them grow however they'd like, but rather to:
  • Cut these grassy plants back to the ground in the Fall at the end of the season.
  • In the Spring and Summer after they've grown back, prune them on a regular basis to remove any dead or dying blades. Once you've started doing this it's fairly easy to just maintain it each day.
  • Also prune them around the base if you'd like to keep them looking more like a clean bunch, especially since these plants spread in part by sending runners underground.
