Raspberries and Monkey Grass

Monkey grass is growing into my raspberry patch. I'd like to leave it there, but wonder if the monkey grass will choke out the raspberries.

Since it's a good idea to keep weeds down within raspberry patches, growing monkey grass should help, as this groundcover will eventually fill in empty areas. I do not think it will choke out your raspberry plants. Monkey grass is seldom an invasive problem, provided you have the clumping variety. However, I would make sure to keep the raspberry plants pruned as these can get quite large and unkempt in appearance without annual pruning.
