Answer: Unless you have at least 1/2 day of sun in your backyard, I would not even try to grow grass, but grow groundcovers and use mulch instead. One of the most shade tolerant grasses are the fescues, but being in Louisiana, they probably won't grow well. Try groundcovers such as wild ginger, goutweed, ivy or pachysandra and mulch heavily traveled areas with bark mulch. Check local nurseries for the groundcovers mentioned as well as others that grow well in Louisiana.
