Mondo Grass – Cutting and Fertilizing

Q: Are you supposed to cut mondo grass? How frequently do you fertilize and with what? 

A: Mondo grass makes a very nice evergreen, shade tolerant, grass-like groundcover. The only time I might mow it is when it’s had freeze damage. I would set my mower just high enough to take off the brown, tattered tips. It does not need fertilizing much unless you want it to spread rapidly. In that case I would use Holly-tone or Milorganite in spring
