What's the best time of year to split grasses?

I have several tall grasses around my pool area and they have out grown the space provided and I'm not sure how to go about splitting them and when is the best time of the year to do this. thanks.

Most of the tall ornamental grasses are warm season grasses. The best time to divide them is in early spring just as growth is beginning. The easiest way to do it, is to dig up the entire clump, and slice through it with a sharp spade or saw. Often you can divide a large clump into 4 or more plants.
