We have always used chainsaw to cut our pampas grass & usually earlier than now (April 24) so I'm just asking if it will stunt it's beautiful growth ......it has a lot of new green growing amongst the old so it will all be cut ??????? Thank you!! Lynda

Your Pampas grass will do better if you cut it down later in the year -- literally at the end of winter. If you cut it down now, then yes: you run the risk of cutting some new growth and it may not reach it's full height afterward. This article may help you:
