    Ok guys I need your help Im Newbie, These damn roots are basically destroying my front lawn. their the" Towns Trees ".So they dont wanna take them down.. And so these roots are tearing everything and taking out my underground sprinklers and I dont know what to do.. My lawn is basically leveled itself out in the past 26 years(My age).. it was a perfect lawn and now it has died. I Also have many uneven areas where the lawn has just become mud puddles. So yesterday first time this year I put down some crabgrass preventer for anytime. and I also got some scotts Scotts® Lawn Pro® Super Turf Builder® with Plus 2® Weed Control.But i gotta wait for the grass to grow and wet the lawn...So please Anyone with some tips or anything I can do that would be great. anything from soil. to mulch beds to islands.. ill try to throw some pics up ! :usflag::rolleyes:

    Before I did any-thing to the trees, I would look at the city bylaws on line.

    Hire an ISA Certified Arborist to root prune the tree.

    You should not do this beyond the drip line and there are other things to
    consider too. It should be done by an experienced pro.

    This may clear up some of your problem and prevent further sprinkler system damage.
