Grasses in the Fall

It seems the folks over at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer area reading my mind again.

I was just wondering what to do with the fountain grass in my front yard and they offer up this column:

Let your grasses grow:
Ignore your itchy fingers and indulge lush ornamentals

I guess my intuition was pretty good last year, though, as I came up with the same idea they had...simply raking out the dead growth and leaving the main structure of the grass. It always bothers me when I see folks who have lopped off the top of the grass leaving an unnatural-looking flat-top clump that never seems to recover.

Sometimes, I guess, leaving it alone is the best action you can take.
