Sunny spot where nothing—not even weeds—grows

Debbie
4 months ago

I have a large sunny spot in my backyard where I have never been able to keep anything alive. There is a huge pine that overhangs the area, but it still gets lots of sun. About 10 or 15 years ago, I had 3 birch trees removed from this area—they were alive, and fighting with the pine, but not terribly happy. I have heard that birch trees have lots of roots near the surface, making it difficult for other plants to grow, but I had hoped that roots would have disintegrated by now. Any ideas about what I can do to help the soil?
