Can't seem to grow grass in Kansas
I have been trying to grow grass in an area that has almost constant shade in the summer because of the large trees in my yard. Every fall the grass starts out great but by the end of the summer it is dead. Also during the summer we do not receive very much rain and what is received may not make it through the tree canopy. Does anyone have a suggestion for a grass that will grow in these conditions or an attractive alternative such as ivy so I don't have to go through this headache every year?
