What is the best kind of grass seed to use when there isn't very much sun. I live in texas over by corpus christy and our back yard has a huge tree that prevents it from getting any sun. but we would love to have grass there

Grass really isn't very happy in the shade. I think your best bet might be a turf type tall fescue. It will need a lot of water in the summertime but it is the most shade tolerant of all grasses.

Best wishes with your turfgrass!
