Find expert tips for grooming a gorgeous lawn under a canopy of trees.
By Julie A. MartensMore in Outdoors
Many times shady areas beneath trees and tall shrubs can be lightened up by pruning limbs. As you prune, aim to thin the canopy so that sunlight can penetrate to grass beneath. With trees, it’s also a good idea to remove lower branches in a process called “limbing up.” By raising the canopy of the tree, you’re creating opportunities for sunlight to reach turf by slanting in beneath branches. Tackle the pruning you can handle yourself with two feet on the ground. If you have mature trees, talk with a certified arborist.
