    I am currently trying to grow grass under a huge bradford pear with no luck. I live in KY and now it has gotten down to the mid. 40's and I don't know if I have any choice but to wait until spring to seed. I did get a good stand of grass this spring but burned it with a pre-m.(i know it was stupid and i deserve the mud front yard)
    Any ideas or advice would be great

    thanks

    Rye is your only hope at this point.

    Sometimes I will just landscape a problem area like that. What if you put some type of border around the area, and filled it in with some new topsoil and mulch. Then you can have flowers under the tree?

    Just an idea.

    If you got good growth before it's early demise,:cry: , prep and plant it now. It's too cold to start any new growth, but will have good soil contact all winter, and should come up nicely in the spring.We are still doing hydroseed jobs here.Doing another tomorrow if it doesn't snow.payup

    Cut the bradford pear down, grind the stump and main support roots, bring in some new topsoil, seed and you will have beautiful grass.
