Carl Forester Grass

Asked May 10, 2019, 1:12 PM EDT

We planted Carl Forester Grass last spring. I recently watched a video that showed that it should be cut down in the spring before new growth started. I did not know that. Should I try to trim back the brown fronds at the bottom now, wait and cut back in the fall, or wait and cut back next spring? Thank you

Even though the grass has started to grow, go ahead and cut it all down now. New leaves will emerge and in a few weeks, you won't even know it was cut. Cutting it back now will not do any long-term damage to the grass.
