Gaining Control Over the Ornamental Grasses

We are slowly making our way through the yard and gardens and getting cleaned up from winter.  We were fortunate last night that we did not receive snow.  There were areas around us that not only received snow, but they got sleet as well.  Very bizarre weather, indeed.  One of the things we have accomplished this week is to get the ornamental grasses in the large pots cut back.

Here, a scraggly mess from the winter months.

And here, cut back to a height to let new growth make its way up./ I also cleaned out around the grass and laid down a fresh layer of cyprus mulch.  It won't be long now until we have beautiful ornamental grasses in all three pots.  If you look closely, you can see new shoots of green sprouting.
