Ornamental grasses, including pampas often die out in the center. To correct this, the entire plant is dug up, the dead parts removed, and pieces from the edges are replanted. This is best done while the grass is dormant or in early spring. Either cut the plant down or use twine to tie it up and out of the way. If you've had this for over 5 years, be advised that this is a big task requiring hard labor. It is difficult to separate the dead center; I've used an axe since regular garden tools did not penetrate the very dense root mass. If this is a massive plant, in place over 10 years, suggesting the use of a small backhoe is not overstating the difficulty.
