Monkey Grass Didn’t Take Root and Is Brown

Zone 9 | JLPS added on June 18, 2013 | Answered

I transferred monkey grass from front yard garden into the backyard. I had lots of the root on it. They each were large and taking over the front yard garden. Now a month later they have not taken root and are brown. Can I do anything to make them take root?

Perhaps something is restricting the roots and preventing them from taking up water - air pockets in the soil could do this. Flood the area around the plants and gently press down the soil around them to collapse any air pockets that may be present.

Have you watered the transplanted monkey grass thoroughly? That's the only thing I can think might cause it to not become established.
