Sally,

Your situation is definitely a difficult one. In order to level the yard some dirt will need to be brought in. Perhaps a friend or some neighbors can help.

Once the yard area is somewhat level you can plant grass. Runner or plugs of St. Augustine is a good grass for shade and an economical way to start a lawn. Just water the new grass plants daily for a while to get them well rooted and off to a good start.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
