Grass stops growing
Q. We have a problem with our yard in back (shade to sun with large Norwegian pine nearby). Where we had grass is now dirt (and mud in the winter). This problem seemed to happen this year but the grass had always been thin. We have a service do our fertilizing. I hesitate to overseed (or sod) in the spring if we have another problem to solve first or if I should bring a professional in to look and make a recommendation.
A. Call the extension service of your local university to find out how to take soil samples and where to send them for analysis. The results of this analysis will tell you what you need to do to improve the soil. You should also ask them what kind of grass seeds or ground cover to use in this area.by
