As I was taking photographs a day or two ago, an odd topic in lawn care came to mind. And then another. And another. These are all things I’ve never really addressed here, but they’re all questions I’m asked every spring. I hope you find them interesting, or maybe even useful.
Roots are a part of any healthy, vigorous tree. If a few of them become visible at, or above the soil’s surface, that’s part of the game. Either live with them, carefully remove one or two of them in the fall (after summer’s hot weather has waned), or plant a shade-tolerant ground cover to conceal them. But don’t try to cover them.
