How to start a new lawn?

how88June 19, 2006

We live in the Pacific NorthWest, southwest corner of British Columbia. We have high trees and shade most of the day. Our old lawn was full of moss and lumps caused by moles. We have turned over the lawn for the third time in 26 years. We had always used turf before for each new lawn. This time we want to seed. I guess we need a grass that will tolerate shade. We want a fine-bladed grass that does not spread by runnners. I would appreciate any suggestions.
