Capital City Notes & Gossip, plus Tales from Library Land
Monkey grass rules. The clumps you provided a couple of years ago are doing quite nicely; though I should probably thin them out a little. Who knew you were supposed to trim the stuff, though? I'll get to work as soon as the snow melts.
I noted trimmed monkey grass for years -- but often in the landscaping of people or businesses that were hacking back crepe myrtles too much, so I thought the process suspect. Then I tihnk I read that cutting back liriope encourages growth or something, and I was all, No way, it doesn't need encouragement! But actucally, it seems to make it a bit tidier.
My personal favorite Fan look was always covering the entire front yard with slate and then using monkey grass for edging. Usually there was some sort of ornamental tree too - Japanese Maple or a Red Bud. Very classy, very now.
