Pruning Ornamental Grasses

Pruning Tips

  • Prune your ornamental grass in early spring after its winter dormancy. To encourage new growth, and ideally before new growth even begins to form, prune the grass back to about 3 to 4 inches.
  • Evergreen grasses do not require early spring pruning except to clear out any signs of damage or disease.
