Bermuda grass won't grow in areas w/ a lot of shade. What is the best grass to use so I have grass in the summer in those shaded areas. I live in AZ in zone 8.

Fescues are the most shade tolerant of grasses but they will go dormant during the hottest months of the summer. Kentucky bluegrass has some tolerance to shade and will remain green in hot weather so you might want to try overseeding your shady areas with a fescue/bluegrass mixture. Best wishes with your turf!
