High tree roots create a problem in lawns. Bob shows how Pachysandra ground cover was used on roots around a Honeylocust tree.

  1. It depends on what type of tree and the consistency of the soil mix you are
    using. The tree in the video is a tough old Thornless Honey Locust and we
    used good draining topsoil mixed with peat moss and mushroom compost. With
    any type of tree you should not use more soil than you have to since it can
    act to suffocate the roots. Always keep the soil pulled-back from the tree
    trunk itself.

  2. Looks great! Do you know if it’s okay to add soil on top of these surface
    roots? I am bidding a job and the customer wants ground cover for covering
    roots. But there doesn’t appear to be enough soil for anything to grow.
    Thanks in advance 😉
