Our lawn is very bumpy and hard to walk on. Are the quaking aspen tree roots doing this? Should we aerate the lawn or does this cause more problems with the roots?
Rate This FAQ
Your quaking aspen tree roots could be causing the bumps, or they could be caused by worms. You can dig into the bumps and if they are woody they belong to your tree, if they are just mounds of dirt they belong to your nightcrawlers.
Aeration is very beneficial. It not only helps with compacted soil, but it allows the worms to deposit their castings somewhere other than on the top of the ground. If you have further quesstions, you can call us at 851-8462.

Would I have emerald ash bores, or do another type of bore exist in Utah? The tree care company suggested treatment in the spring, and another in the summer. Does that sound appropriate?

- I have several large beds in which I would like to plant shrubs, perennials, and some annuals. I am wondering what, if any, weed barrier I should use for these beds.

If a thick layer of mulch alone is virtually as effective as weed barrier, I would rather avoid the expense and hassle of laying the barrier. Which is the best option?
