I have two big patches in my lawn where nothing will grow but a little moss and a few weeds. Other sections are OK. One spot is under a tree but the other isn’t. Could there be a problem with the soil?Thanks for your help.Jack G.

All soil gradually becomes more acidic over time.  Under trees, this is accelerated due to debris from the tree rotting into the soil.  Unless the pH of the soil is checked every few years and corrected, the grass will struggle and moss, which prefers acidic soil, takes hold and chokes out the grass (which prefers neutral soil).  Most weeds aren’t too picky about pH so they can thrive there too.  HERE’s a link to more on checking and correcting soil pH.
