Not sure what kind of tree it is, but the roots have taken over the grass on half of my yard. The yard slopes off pretty steep toward the driveway. I have had a landscaper told me that nothing will grow there but that could have been because he didnt want to do it. Is there anyway that I could maybe put a good layer of topsoil over this and then seed it? Or maybe plant some shade loving ground cover. There is a lot more roots than the picture shows. Thanks for any helpful info.
