Linden tree is starving my lawn

Postby ian90q » May 10, 2008 3:40 pm

My front lawn is approx. 16' x 14' (very small). The 20 year old linden tree seems to suck up all the water leaving my lawn very thin. Are there any lawn seeds that would be more hardy to not having less moisture?
Please help.
Thankyou

If you watch the ads on TV

This is the 2nd year for it. Ad for a type of grass seed that will grow on anything anywhere and for all climate

Very very cheap I have ordered some

2 pkg for $19.99 but will cover 2000 square ft Looks like pretty good stuff and will germinate and grow 2 inches in a week


I wonder if the Linden is causing your problem tho because my linden is about 20 ft tall ad I see no problem with the grass around it

You may have bugs in you grass eating the roots

Drugan has posted some good links on different bugs this past week

Look for a seed that will tolerate drought and shade.
