Ground Cover for Established Japanese Maple

Anonymous added on November 8, 2014 | Answered

I am redesigning an area in my backyard. I have an established Japanese maple and a Cherry Blossom in the area I am considering changing. I currently have mulch in the area and want to change it to sand (like what is used in the golf bunkers). My question is " will adding sand and removing the mulch have any affect on the future of these two trees?
