Cutting Down Low Maintenace Ornamental Grasses


Two of the borders up at The Canal Building are full of low maintenace, ornamental grasses which have turned to a straw brown in colour and are well past their best display.

This morning they were cut down using the petrol hedge trimmer. The dry stems were then raked up and taken to the compost heaps where they will be mixed in with grass cuttings, leaves, herbaceous material and shredded paper.

Once the two borders had been raked clear a top dressing of wood chip was added. These low maintenance, ornamental grass borders will be visited again this time next year.
