How to Control the wild iris in my yard
We moved into our house about a year ago. The front yard is lined with very large yellow wild iris plants. We regularly trimmed them to be about 3 feet tall. Our neighbors (we live in the model homes so all of us had these in front) have cut theirs super short. Now the old leaves are brown edged and short while new leaves have sprung up green and healthy. I get the sense that this is the pattern which is why the base of the plant is crowded like a shrub. I like having the plants as sort of a natural fence (making it harder for the random dog being walked or teenager walking home) to walk on our lawn. I don't want them to die but also don't want to be the only house on the block with huge tall plants.
any advice would be awesome. It took me forever to even figure out that these were in fact irises.
thanks so much!
