Pampas grass has razor sharp leaves so be sure to wear leather gloves and a long sleeved shirt while you're cutting the clump back. You can cut the individual leaves with sharp pruners but it's a very painstaking process. My neighbors use a chainsaw on theirs! If you don't have a chainsaw you might try a sharp scythe. Wish there were an easier way to cut pampas grass back!
