ok, i dont mean dry grass like your lawn clippings or someting, but tall hollow grass that grows in my yard, its all dried out and it looks like straw, me and my friend figured itd work just fine.

also, instead of using woodchips for stuff, dont u guys think bark off of trees would work good?

Dunno about the grass, but it sounds workable! As far as bark, I wouldn't do that, all bark is is basically cork, which probably doesn't have much nutritional value, the actual woodchips are from the insides of the tree, where the water and nutrients are transferred, all bark does is for basically a scab over the whole tree to protect the insides from the elements. Good luck!

thanks! ill give the grass thing a shot, id imagine itd work, since its the shit that really matters in outdoors, isnt it?

forgive me if im wrong, but i still think that bark may have some nutritional value as beavers eat that stuff.... where i live there is beavers damming up my damned creek, and they leave sticks lying around with all the bark nawed off...
