Earline,

That grass is usually trimmed in late winter prior to the onset of new growth. If it is really bad looking you can trim now or do some light trimming now. Otherwise in early February cut the thing back to about 8 inches high and it will be back filling in with lots of fresh attractive foliage.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
