Pine trees

Asked June 24, 2015, 11:15 PM EDT

We have just moved into a home. the neighbors have a very tall pine tree with some branches that hang over a small part in our yard. Nothing will grow their including grass. Do you have any suggestions of what I might be able to plant in this bare spot in my lawn?

Thank you
