Rusty,

That depends on your personal preference...and interest in getting involved in lots of work!

Pampas grass can be allowed to grow with out being cut back in time it will become a large clump with lots of dead material included in the clump. You can also cut it back each year to rejuvenate the clump and remove the old dead growth. However, this is quite a job. Better wear gloves and figure out what to do with all those tough trimmings you will end up with.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again any time we can help!
