i was just curious what you all used in the spring clean up for landscapes. we use our hedge trimmers to cut down ornamental grasses, and all other types that get cut down in that manner for the spring. perrenials are usually just hand pulled as the dead just slips right off to expose the new emerging growth. do any of you still do the old school method of hand shears?? sometimes we use those on liriope as they are so short to the ground they are dangerous to do with hedge trimmers while someone is holding it "up" for you to cut.
