Gianni,

I had a Reliance peach on the edge of my garden.  Literally on the 
edge.  One side of the root ball was in loose garden soil and the 
other side was under turf.  The tree did OK for a couple of years but 
then got quite distorted and started leaning towards the garden 
because the roots on the turf side were stunted.  I lifted up the 
turf and applied wood ashes and horse manure to that side and then 
replaced each piece of turf UPSIDE DOWN.  The tree appears to be 
recovering nicely.

Del's suggestion about mulching is good.  Regardless of how you deal 
with the turf your trees will be much better off without the 
competition.
