Is it time now to cut back the ornamental grasses in our yard or should we do that in the spring??

I'd wait until spring to cut back your ornamental grasses. Not only will they look interesting in the winter garden if you leave them as is, the blades will help insulate the roots of the plants so they can endure the winter weather. In the spring you can cut them back, just as new growth begins. Enjoy your garden!
