Q.Grass Dying Under Linden Tree

Zone Waunakee, WI 53597 | Anonymous added on July 20, 2021 | Answered

We have a very large Linden tree. The grass under the tree, for the last few years is dying. We have seeded, new grass grows and looks great. By the end of summer, all of the grass under the tree is dead. We are using shade grass seed. Is there something else we can do to save the grass? Thank you.

It may be that the soil is poor around that area. Sometimes, improving the soil by adding compost and just a little topsoil to the are can help put nutrients back into the area.

If that does not fix the issue, than it may be difficult to find anything that will grow under the tree.

Here are some articles that will offer more information on things that will grow well under trees:
