There are options for replacing turf in heavily shaded areas on your property. Large trees that are very mature and contain very deep roots and they can compete with turf for nutrients and that is not a good thing. The tree usually wins the nutrients. The right place for turf is not near mature trees.
- The good news is, there are alternatives to turf
- If planting groundcover near trees, it is best to start growing them while trees are younger.
- If you choose fescue turf for your lawn, you can encourage its growth in shaded areas
