Grass vs Trees
From a recent Dr. Dirt Indy Star column:

Dear Dr. Dirt: Our lawn has two large sugar maple trees. There is NO grass around these trees. We love the trees, but would like a little grass to go with them.

Dear Reader: For the most part, grass and trees are NOT compatible. Grass needs LOTS of SUNLIGHT and PLENTY of SOIL MOISTURE. Trees block the sun and their roots draw the moisture, killing the grass. You may shred the maple leaves and cover the area under the trees with them. Perhaps some wild flowers will become established in the leaf mulch? You can move out five or six feet from the trees and front them with some low growing shrubs with horizontal branching.
Otherwise, enjoy your trees just do not expect lush green grass underneath them.

A Huge Thank You to Ken Myers for tackling our invasive honeysuckle!!! It is easy to get used to honeysuckle and say, “Oh, it is so pretty! It provides such a nice privacy screen.” But the invasive honeysuckle is KILLING our WOODS. It strangles our trees and poisons the ground so that other underbrush will not grow. Our birds, wildlife and insects leave the area because there is nothing for them to eat.
