If the new growth isn't too tall, just cut the old growth higher than normal. Or ask her if she cares that the tips of the new will be sheared. Or just cut off the old growth that has already yellowed and is laying on the ground. That is the most time-consuming option, so you should charge extra for that tedious, careful approach.

So let me get this straight, is it ok to let them go this year and tell her next year we'll get them at the end of feb?

The health of the plants won't be affected, only the appearance. We can't see them, you and the client can. Talk it over with her.

I know you cant see them, i think thats clear, the health of the plant answered my question. I apologize if the intent of my question was unclear. Thank you for the information.

What I mean is that sometimes Liriope looks awful after the winter and yet other plantings of it will look presentable. I don't know how ratty this particular one looks.
