The Q&A Archives: Grass for high traffic, partial-sun areas

Question: I know it's getting late in the season, but due to unavoidable circumstances, we must reseed a portion of our lawn. We are in St. Louis and the area gets about 5 hours of sun by mid summer, and is in the children's play area. Can you suggest the best seed variety or mix for this time of year?

Answer: Go with a blend of turf-type tall fescues. Check your local garden center for specific varieties available there.
