Thread: deer lawn

  1. #1

    deer lawn

    I have a small woodland, mixed but a lot of conifers. very hard to get a shot so we have made a clearing. Its now much better for a shot from a seat but the ground is dead from the pine needle mulch. Is there a procedure to assist new plant growth or could I even seed it somehow? I know needles are toxic to other plants so do I have to move them or does the soil just need time?

    Yes, you're right. They are acidic. All that will grow will be more of the same, and they will take a while to establish.

    You need to scarify it and move/break all that up, and probably do some seeding/sapling planting yourself.

    Give it a good covering of lime and other fertalisers and plant some shrubs you will have a nice deer lawn in no time.

    Not sure what part of the country you are but lime will do the trick, try and get hold of some grass seed, can't remember the variety , but the stuff councills use for pathing up areas will grow anywhere.
    Also brash the trees around the clearing.

    Good luck
