I have recently read several people recommend using thinning-scissors, which I believe are unique to the hair care industry, for thinning the growth of an established patch of hair grass (i.e. Eleocharis sp.). Has anyone here actually tried this? Were the results satisfying? I am interested in seeing before and after pictures if they are available.

Thanks,

Rob

Turtlehead, do you have any pictures? What brand/size of scissors are you using?

Yeah, I grow it as well. Never thought of hacking into it, except for when I had staghorn on it. That was a real riot.

hair grass is hairgrass so yes
Not quite. There are 3 different "Hair Grasses" in the trade:
1) E. Parvula--Pygmy Hairgrass
2) E. Acicularis--Dwarf Hairgrass
3) E. Vivipara--Giant Hairgrass
