Shade grasses/ wooded area?
I hope to take advantage of a wooded lot my uncle owns; he has a small cabin on it and I'd like to plant some sort of grass immediately around it.
The land is home to a few species of trees at least. I was able to identify some black cherry and yellow birch. Also I believe there are several small beech trees growing. Most of the larger trees are something I haven't yet identified; my best guess is a type of maple or ash. In the summer, most of the land would be shaded by these trees, which range in height from 30-50 feet.
Is there any kind of grass (or maybe something similar) that I could plant as a sort of "forest floor"? We'd prefer something other than dead leaves and mud/dirt. Even something that might grow in thinly would be an improvement; I don't expect to get a full thick lawn. Thanks...
