Tree Damage

Hi, I have a Maple tree in my backyard and it looks like the trunk has some damage or might be starting to rot by the ground. Is there some type of sealant or something I can put on it to help protect it? Thanks, Martin

Tree roots

We have mature trees at the back of our yard. They have created large, bumpy roots throughout the yard. These are likely dangerous as we age. Hackberry and black walnut. Can i cover the roots with soil? In other words, raise the level of the yard a few inches?

Killing Bermuda Grass / reseeding with Fescue

Is it too late in season to attempt to kill off Bermuda grass and sow Fescue seed? This is for a landscape island in our cul-de-sac, would it be best to till up and remove weeds and Bermuda grass and then amend with soil and starter fertilizer and apply seed?

Removing Sod Over Landscaping Fabric

I recently purchased a house and am just beginning to do yardwork and landscaping. In one corner abutting the drive and sidewalk, we have a 4 foot diameter quarter circle that has about 3" of bermuda geass growing atop old landscape fabric. What is the easiest way to remove the sod from the bed? Should I remove the old landscape fabric at the same time?
