If a ornamental grass proliferates heavily, it can be planted in perforated buckets, root traps or plant baskets. This prevents the plant from spreading too much and displacing other plants. In summer, always make sure that the ornamental grass receives enough water. A waterlogging should be avoided at all costs, as ornamental grasses tend to rot fast.
