Burning Grass

The perennial grass garden is left to over-winter and add nice form to our landscaping.  It is very dry this time of the year and ready to go.

The fire is a quick and efficient method of getting rid of last year's growth.  It is gone in seconds!

The great plains of the western part of our country was rejuvenated in this manner through millennia.  Before there were humans, lightening strikes did the job.

The plants are not destroyed.  With the area open to sunshine and rain, the grasses will soon return.

Some weeding of unwanted clumps needs to be done.  A little additional mulch will set up this garden for the year.
