Q: The grass around our arborvitaes used to be beautiful. This spring, I noticed the grass is very thin and the winter winds blew a lot of the dead needles out of the trees and onto the grass. Can these needles damage the grass? The grass where the needles didn't fall looks normal. If the needles do affect the lawn, what can be done other than trying to remove the majority of the needles?
