Grow Grass Under Pine Tree

Question From: S. Pilgrim - Mesa, Arizona, United States
Q: I can't get grass to grow underneath my pine trees. Any suggestions?

A: Grass cannot grow under pine trees unless you trim them way up. Lack of sun and water are both issues. The best thing for the tree is mulch with 4 inches of organic mulch out to the drip line. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
