Divide ornamental grasses
Depending on the scale and age of your grass, you'll need a sharp spade or shovel and a knife, possibly an axe or even a chainsaw or crowbar! You'll also need some shears.
- Dig around the plant allowing as much root ball as practical and lift it out of the ground.
- Divide the clump into sections using a knife, a saw or a chainsaw.
- Trim the foliage back by one-quarter to one-third of its original height.
- Replant the divisions as soon as possible, to prevent moisture loss.
