Dear Experts,

Would appreciate if you can advise me on the


I have 3 trees in my back yard, all will

shed off leaves in winter (which leaves

behind a lot of mess to clean)

Landscape grass needs sunshine, which is

difficult to get in summer, as the Trees

shade a lot with green leaves.

Thinking of get ridding of grass and putting

landscape tiles around the tree and

and probably upto the patio. I live in dallas

is it a good idea? or do I need to get rid of trees to enjoy the backyard?

Any suggestions and any hints on what is

min $$$4 I am looking at? My backyard can be

classified as mdeium-small.

thanks in advance

do you know what kind of trees you have? you should be able to grow fescue or st. augustine in the shade in dallas unless you have total shade all day. if so, you could selectively thin out the canope of the trees to allow filtered sun. some people go with ground covers like asian jasmine or english ivy.
