    Does anyone know if it would be ok for me to plant monkey grass in my run? The run is dirt now with straw covering. Monkey grass is extremely hardy. I thought it might draw more bugs into the run. I know it is safe for my dogs. I have even seen them picking the berries from it and eating them.

    Mine eat it. I tried to plant some in certain places, but let's just say it made it to 3" tall and got consumed. Cant grow hostas either.
