dwarf mondo grass not growing well
We had our front landscaped in November. He put in dwarf mondo grass under our big cedar tree. There are about 6 inches between each small clump. The area is on a slope, with the tree (which has about 2 ft of river rock around it) two thirds up the slope to the fence. Above the tree, at the top of the slope, next to the fence, the grass is at least perceptibly growing - not much, but I do see growth - but below the tree, at the bottom of the slope, I can't reallly see any growth at all since November.
Is this because it's winter? (Mild - in SF Bay area) Or because the grass at the top stays slightly more moist? What's the governing factor in regards to growth? Light? Moisture? How long should it take for clumps to fill out that 6 inch spacing?
