Question of the Week

We have many trees whose roots have spread over the surface of the yard. The grass in those areas has died out and we would like to get it back. The local lawn service told us we would have to remove the trees to get grass to grow in those places. We do not consider that an option. Can we cut off the roots that have come to the surface and replant the grass without killing the trees? Get the answer »
