Oak Tree Roots Above Soil - Knowledgebase Question

Question by alroseh

I have oak trees in my front yard and the roots stick up above the soil so high that I can't mow the grass as the mower blade hits them. Is there a solution to this?

There are not any real solutions but you can add topsoil to the low spots between the roots. The grass will grow up through the topsoil if you add less than two inches at a time. If the areas are lower than 2 inches you can make several topsoil applications over a period of several months, allowing the turf to grow up through each application. Good luck with your lawn.
