Q.cutting pompas grass

Zone jonesboro, ar 72401 | Anonymous added on February 20, 2018 | Answered

is it true I heard my pompas grass in the winter when I cut it back it should be cut like rounded…..humped up in the middle. I guess you’d say higher in the middle then the sides?
so that way it doesn’t die off in the middle?

I should cut all the way down to 6 to 8 inches from the ground?

thank you,

You can cut the whole clump of pampas grass evenly, 6-8 inches from the ground. Each individual grass plant will then have enough of its base remaining so that it won't die off. The only reason you'd need to cut it higher in the middle would be if it was planted that way (on a mound with the middle higher).
