Can I grow Karl forester grass with switchgrass and bluestem, in a decorative area of the yard? And if so, can they all be burned off in the spring?

I can't think of a good reason why you couldn't. They are all beautiful grasses and should be compatible with each other. As far as burning is concerned, that will depend on where you live and the local ordinances regarding fires. Again, I don't see any reason why you couldn't burn them down when necessary. But if it is a small area it may be best to just cut them back each year.
