bare patch under pine trees

Hi all,
I have been trying to fix bare patches on my lawn. My garden has 4 huge pine trees. As it is quite wet and there are not too many needles at the moment, I decided to use miracle gro patch magic, but it doesn't seem to do te trick.
Does anyone have any miracle techniques grow grass under pine trees ?
Thank you -Greg

The first part of that advice is probably the best. I have a pine tree and grass doesn't grow under it. I just leave the needles there as a natural mulch and spot treat any troublesome weeds, if needed. Very few weeds even try to grow there.
The part of the advice where they say to put down lime I think is questionable. I'm no expert on pines, but they like acidic soil and I would think you run the risk of killing the tree, while trying to make grass grow where it's very difficult or impossible.
