How to eliminate weeds and grass from under our trees
Rae on Jun 24, 2018I have had better luck with killing off the weeds before using landscape fabric. I have even just weed wacked down to the dirt in a lot of areas and it looks nice to not have weeds growing up around the trunk of the tree. I have a zero turn mower and that seems to keep the grass down fairly well with the occasional trimming to get the shape back.Helpful Reply

Yat29536580 on Jun 24, 2018If you use mulch, do not make it too high. Tree roots need oxygen to live so they will need a way for water and air to get down into the soil. Do not pile a mound of mulch around the trunks; this will create a space for rodents and insects to hide out and disease to attack the tree trunks. Keep mulch several feet away from trunks. A ground cover such as ajuga or liriope muscari planted in a circle under the spread of the trees will crowd out the weeds and always look good.Helpful Reply
