Amy, I am not an expert, but I would never add mulch or dirt under pines or spruces. I typically use only pine straw, which is light and does not suffocate the roots. I have had trouble finding pine straw this year due to some disease problem at the Southern suppliers, so I will just wait until it is available.

Hello, where would I find the response to my comment(question)?

Comment by amy on May 31, 2016 at 10:09am

Hello, I have 3 large 45 yr old pine trees that the roots are showing. The pines are nice but underneath weeds keep growing. So, my question is do I spread mulch or top soil under them. I am planning on getting a load of mulch but I was told mulch might suffocate the roots which could kill the pines. then if I put top soil down, could I put mulch over the top soil. Please help. Thank you!

Barbara if your lawn needs 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 15 applications truly depends what a soil test would indicate what your lawns needs are. So the question becomes did the lawn care service do a soil test?

I have recently been told by a lawn care service that local lawns need 6 fertilizer applications. I always thought that 4 were sufficient with the possible addition of a late winter high nitrogen application (around Thanksgiving). Why is it now being said that we need 6 fertilizer applications?

Unfortunately, most people buy into the eco-terrorists' idea that lawn care and the use of phosphorous is somehow related to what uneducated hillbillies do in agriculture. When used correctly, a stand of turfgrass has a thick root system that will take up most everything one could apply to it. I am not "just in the industry," but I did work for the City of Dayton, where I used much more stiffly regulated concoctions than fertilizers that contain phosphorous. Not only did I use these chemicals, I did so on the well field... Drinking water people! And everything seems fine. It has been documented that some "yokels" have indiscriminately layered huge amounts of phosphorous laden manure all over their fields, (that have drainage furrows) in turn contaminating creeks and streams that drain into larger bodies of water.(i.e. Lake St. Mary's)
REMEMBER: THE LABEL IS THE LAW! FOLLOW DIRECTIONS.

Do want a great looking lawn in 2015? You might not be able to due to the fact that most fertilizer are limited in the amount of Phosphorus in most do-it-yourself lawn care applications.

my lawn looks great Its been a great spring.I'm going to be cutting it at the max height this year with the lawn mower and see how it does.

I did some dormant seeding in January with a bag of GV's Premium lawn seed. My lawn looks real good.  Still have some weed issues but it's only been a week since I applied Viper.  Huge improvement over last year.
