Can I plant ribbon grass/canary grass on a septic mound?
Can I plant ribbon grass/canary grass on a septic mound without damaging the septic system? I need a good ground cover for this mostly shaded area.

Ribbon grass is very invasive so be prepared to watch it so it doesn't migrate into your lawn. Here is a link to info from the University of Illinois http://extension.illinois.edu/grasses/ribbon_grass.cfm
We do have a publication worth reading about planting over septic mounds and suggestions for possible plants.
