The Q&A Archives: No lawn in shade

Question: My front lawn has two trees that provide lots of shade, but little grass grows there. Is there a type of seed of grass that i should plant that will grow in the shade? What would be the best time to put this seed down?

Answer: Unfortunately, there are no turf grass varieties that thrive in the shade in the low desert. St. Augustine grass will take some shade, but not "lots" as you describe your conditions.
