Oak trees & Grass
I have two huge oak trees in my front yard and I have trouble growing grass under the tree canopy. The ground is currently covered with dead oak leaves, but I plan on trying to convince grass to grow this spring. I have put down St. Augustine sod in the past and it has not survived. I have an inground sprinkler system so water is not an issue. I don't know if the shade is the issue or the acidity of the soil. Does anybody have any suggestions for successful grass under these conditions?
