The Q&A Archives: Grass for Sandy, Shady Conditions

Question: What is the best grass to grow in shady, sandy soil in East Texas?

Answer: Most grasses do not tolerate shady conditions (but sandy soils make for deep root penetration when grass is deeply watered). Choose red fescue or creeping bentgrass for the shady areas of your lawn, or try Palmer's Pride Shady Lawn Blend. This is a grass seed mixture containing 70% Tall Fescues / 30% Fine Fescue (C.Red) + Kentucky Bluegrass.

Best wishes with your lawn!
