Mondo Grass Care: How To Grow Mondo Grass In Your Garden
The first thing to know about growing mondo grass is that it needs a little bit of space between each blade. If you don’t have enough space, then the blades will not grow properly and they won’t look good either. You need to keep them apart so that the roots can get some room too.
You could try planting the blades one after another or you could do something else. There are many different ways to grow mondo grass, but I like to use a method called “planted beds”. Basically, I just put down a layer of soil and cover it with plastic sheeting. Then I spread out the plants and let them grow naturally. The problem with this method is that sometimes there’s no place where the roots can go because of tall weeds or other obstacles around your yard.
So I’ve come up with a way to make my own raised bed.
I’m going to show you how to build a raised bed using wood chips and sawdust. This method is much easier than planting the grass into the ground. You’ll need two pieces of wood, which you can buy at any hardware store (or even from Home Depot). One piece of wood is big enough for your lawnmower blade, while the second piece is small enough for your garden pot. Cut both wood pieces into the form of a rectangular prism and put them together using the wood screws.
Your raised bed is complete and you can fill it with wood chips and sawdust. Spread out the wood chunks so that they are evenly distributed in the bed. If you want to, you can also add more layers on top of the wood. Spread out two inches of soil (that contains organic fertilizer) on top of the wood bed.
