80 foot pine tees roots

Home More advice Home & Garden

I have 11 80 foot tall pine trees and the roots are out of control. They are all over this yard making it impossible to cut grass. Can I fill in the yard with 12" topsoil and re plant grass? Some roots are 4-5" in diamiter and completely on top of the existing lawn. others are only 2-3" . I have removed a lot of pine needles and exposed even more roots. Can I cover them with dirt? Any help would be appriciated
