Growing grass in a shade garden
Please help. For the last 14 years we have tried to grow grass in our backyard which is in total shade. Originally, we planted grass seed and the grass grew reasonably well. Two years ago we completed redid our landscaping and put in sod. Needless to say, it did not take. In April of this year my husband dug it all up and seeded again. This time it did not do so well and currently the grass is very sparse. Our property backs on to a carolinian forest which means there are several very tall, old trees which are predominantly maple and oak. We would really appreciate knowing if there is a specialty brand of seed that we could try planting this fall that may improve our grass. Any and all suggestions would be most appreciated. Sorry if this has already been addressed. This is my first post on GardenWeb.
