When to Trim Monkey Grass: Like other types of ornamental grasses, the best time to cut back monkey grass is in late winter or early spring. That way it will stay green all winter and insulate its roots from the cold, then after trimming the monkey grass only be bare for a few weeks while new leaves grow.
Beside above, how do you treat monkey grass?
- Water: Monkey grass only needs watering two weeks after initial planting.
- Mulch: Apply 2-4 inches of mulch after trimming to help ward off weeds.
- Weed: Hand pull weeds around your monkey grass or spot treat weeds with a post emergent- be sure to steer clear of spraying the monkey grass.
Apply a general 10-10-10 fertilizer in the fall or early spring before new growth begins. Fertilizer will help the monkey grass cover more ground quicker. Use 1 pound per 100 square feet of monkey grass. Water after application to wash the fertilizer from the foliage and to help it move into the soil.
