We have a large quantity of pampas grass in our area; some on people's property, and some along the perimeter of vacant lots. I would like to cut some of this to use for decoration at my daughter's wedding in December. My husband is concerned that if someone sees me cutting it they will become angry. To me, it seems as if it is dying out anyway. I would appreciate information so that I am not misconstrued as the environmentally/aesthtically "unfriendly" neighbor!
