I have several bunches and variety of tall grasses. I normally had taken great efforts to having them cut down each spring. I wonder what if I leave them alone this year, would they still grow well and look nice? Many thanks,

They will grow ok but they definately will not look very nice and well managed. All of that dead material will just sand there and the new growth will come in into it and the two together do not present a very nice look. Best to go in there before the grasses start to grow and remove the old material.
