That sounds like a tough spot for grass to grow. Bermuda will struggle with that much shade. St. Augustine can take the shade but will not tolerate the foot traffic very well. I think between the two you'd be happiest with St. Augustine. You can either solid sod the area for immediate coverage or plant plugs or strips of St. Augustine about a foot apart and get coverage by the end of summer season.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
