By early June the grasses in the stock tank garden were a matted, unsightly mess.
Spring rains and good soil grew them into the biggest specimens I've seen. But those same rains and "too good" soil led to an early demise plus they were smothering the rest of the plants anyway. Not a good look.
Mexican Feather Grass (Nasella tenuissima) can usually be rejuvenated by grooming out the brown strands allowing the green to sprout again. I gave it a try to no avail since all the plants were toasty brown through and through. It was time to yank them all out and start over.
Much better already without the dead grasses
I could have left it like this for the summer but Mexican Feather Grass reseeds freely and I needed to thin them out from the front garden. With a ready supply of new plants why not just put a few back to fill in the spaces.
There, now that's so much better!
