I live in the Boston area and I started to rake some pine nnedeles that I did not get to in the fall.

I was surprised that when I raked the pine needles much of the "lawn" came with it. I put lawn in quotes since somehow my grass has been replaced by something that maybe be moss. It light green and yellow in color and soft to touch. It comes off it layers very easily. It is somebody taking off a hir piece

I now wide area of bare earth ( 2 by 3 feet sections). I guess I will re seed .

Does anybody know what happened ? The area is shady (pine trees) but there has been grass their in the past. I think there was grass last fall.

I do not think it was grub or insects since do treat foer this. I do weed killer and fertilizer in the spring and fall.

possibly the pine needles have changed the PH of your soil making it more acidic.

I know that certain plants will die if planted around pine trees.
