divide grasses

hi, I have a lovely grass in the garden, I do not know what type of grass it is. height is 1.5 m tall, however a large part of it is dry and dead, should i dig up and divide, if so when.

I am new to gardening!!

    traditionally grasses are split and replanted when the growing season starts. Have you a pic so we can identify your grass? Some will put up with whatever you do, whenever you do it but some won't

    Yes, early Spring is the ideal time, they begin to make new roots then.

  • Thanks all for your advice, I dont have a picture but  i think it is a type of miscanthus grass, if that helps.
