I have 2 beautiful maple trees in my front yard, surrounded by 2 not so beautiful circles of bare soil. I have gotten some grass to seed but it’s really patchy. They are mature trees, so shade is a big issue, as well as their shallow roots.
I’m wondering if there is anything that can survive around the base of those maples? I’m just looking for something that would look nice and I could mow around. Opinions online seem to disagree, and I’m not even sure I can safely mulch around the base of the tree?
Any guidance you can give me would be excellent!
