What should I do with the monkey grass?
I dug up low-lying, spreading azaleas in front of my front door and translated them in the side yard. Their had been 3 tiers there for many years, made from landscape timbers and I'm rebuilding them since they were all rotten. I wanted to open up that area to give the front door area some "breathing" room. Once the tiers are rebuilt, I'm planting some red and green coleus (similar to the photo) there that I think will look nice with my new deep red door. My question is about the monkey grass. It's been along the steps for many years but I wonder if I should also dig it up and either give it away or plant it somewhere else. I sort of like the way it softens the area between the soil and the concrete but then I wonder if removing it would give more breathing room to the area. Opinions? Any landscape architects out there?
