[quote="smokensqueal"]I would test the soil PH to see where that is at. I'm sure it will be fairly low because of the needles. I would then build a little bed around it and fill it with maybe a foot of clean soil. Then I would just add a plant that likes that type of PH soil. I would think trying to change the PH of the soil would be kind of hard because of the amount of needles that have been there. Take a look at this list it might help you out as to what plant likes that PH.
Thank you for the advice. We are having a ph test reformed. With the results of the test , we will be able to select a suitable planting.
