Ornamental Grass

At the end of winter or in early spring, it's a good time to trim your ornamental grass. Cutting away the dried up grass makes room for new growth.

You can trim your ornamental grass with hedge clippers, a very sharp knife or even plain old scissors just like I'm using in this video.

    So is dried up ornamental grass a brown or a green? I have a big fat ornamental grass that I hacked down recently (NOT with scissors!), but don't know how to count it in the compost bin. I am not SO sure it matters, seeing as this is only a theoretical compost bin that has not yet been built. 'Course now I know I just need a trash can and a drill and I will be well on my way! :)

    Hi Valerius,
    Thanks for stopping by. If your grass is brown and dry looking like mine, then definitely count it as a brown in your theoretical bin. :)

    Nice! I like my "Chef Tony" scissors from the super-sharp knife set, they work great in the garden. (The knives work well for dividing perennials, too...I have a "dirty set" for outside, not using the same ones I cook with.)
