I'm in Zone 4. My yard is lined with Eastern Red Cedar trees. They are
great because they provide wonderful privacy, but I have a lot of
trouble growing grass in even the sunny spots in the middle of the
yard, and growing anything at all in the shade of the cedars. Does
anyone know if there is anything specific to cedar trees that causes
this, and what I might plant near the trees that would survive?
Also, I've never done anything in terms of feeding or mulching them -
again are there any suggestions?
