How do you keep grass green and healthy with pine needles frequently covering the yard?
There are several large, old pine trees in our back yard, and one of them releases large, long pine needles several times a year. We can't seem to keep up with the volume and our grass is burning out! How can we either deal with the pine needles (there are SO many) or keep our grass healthy?
Unfortunately, you've already mentioned the solution and that you don't have time for it. Just as with leaves from other types of trees, rocks, twigs, etc, if you let the needles pile up, they block out the sun and water your grass needs. You're grass isn't getting "burnt out", it's just not getting the sun and water it needs.
