Question about pampas grass

What are the do's and don'ts when trimming pampas grass? Currently, my large clumps are in a state of brown-ugliness. This is the first Spring I've had them...as I moved into this house last Autumn. I know one thing, definitely wear long sleeves and gloves when handling the leaves! ------------ Oh, and I'll be posting a full update about the bullfrog in my pond soon. Thanks to all the people who responded with advice and comments.
