Daniel Davidson, with Alan Ivey Landscape says:
- Monkey grass: I normally set the height of the push mower at the highest setting.
- Fountain grass: depends on height and type. Contact your landscape professional for more info.
- Tall grass: I probably cut back 1′ to 2′ from base of plant.
- Smaller grass: probably 8” to 16” from base of plant.
It’s more of a gut feeling when cutting it back if that makes any sense. If you have any questions just let me know:
