|my bermuda grass is thin and yellowed at the spot where it comes out of the ground. It is not growing very fast, thin! What do I do?? It is under oak tress but it does get sun. The yellow area is the exact area of the tree umbrella!!

|The soil beneath trees is usually dry because of surface roots so your bermuda is not only battling for sunshine but is also competing with the tree roots for moisture and nutrients. There's not much you can do other than to rake and reseed and keep the area well watered. Since bermuda thrives on nitrogen you might also try feeding your lawn. This should help it green up.
