Dear Expert, I have a small area behind my home which at this time has been excavated and backfilled with a rough grade of native clay soil. I would like to plant a low profile grass that needs as little maintenance as possible. I expect to put a layer of about 3-4 inches of top soil cover and then plant some grass. The area is on the south side of my home. I might even consider putting down rolled sod. I have several small dogs which will need to use this area, but because of age and other responsibilities I need to have as little extra work as possible. This area is about 10' x 40' which for these small dogs will be fenced. Your advice for this grass application would be most helpful. Sincerely, Herb 100% disabled service connected veteran

Pine tree deaths

Hello. I am wondering if you could give ma any information on what may be killing pine trees on my property. I live in Douglas county (Roseburg) and I have pine trees dying at an alarming rate. In the past 6 months I have lost 8-9 trees with more starting to turn brown. The trees are dying in a progressive pattern, (one by one in a row). I know there have been a lot of Doug Fir deaths in the area, but no one but me seems to have any issue with the pines. Could it be a beetle? Any help is appreciated

I think the larvae belongs to the beetle just because of the markings, but who knows? the bug is about an inch long. we are hesitant about keeping it around for firewood this winter in case the larvae hatch and infest every other tree around. suggestions?

Broad leaf (pasture) grass

How do you kill Broadleaf - pasture grass from your lawn? A few years ago Weed-B-Gone Max used to kill it and not hurt your lawn. I think they have changed the formula because it has no effect on the broad leaf grass anymore. Thank you

Do you know why many fir trees are dying here in Douglas county? We live out Cole Road and I counted 32 trees that are dead or dying from my house to town. Is it the lack of rain?
