The Q&A Archives: Grass for Shade in Tennessee

Question: What is the best grass for shady areas of my Tennessee lawn? Alternates?

Answer: About the only shade tolerant sod available in your area is "Celebration" Bermudagrass, a selected mutation of Cynodon dactylon, a hybrid cultivar of Bermuda, chosen specifically for its dark blue-green color, low growing habit, adaptability to light-moderate shade, and excellent drought tolerance. Best wishes with your lawn!
