|We recently bought a home and while most of the saint augustine lawn is thriving, the area around the perimeter of the backyard is mostly bare. The area is heavily shaded (mainly by mulberry trees) and we're wondering what the best way is to repair/reseed the lawn in that area.

|You won't be able to find St. Augustine seeds so if you want turf in that area you'll need to dig plugs out of your existing lawn and transplant them to the bare areas. St. Augustine - or most any turf, for that matter - won't grow well in shady areas so maybe you'll want to rethink your project and plant groundcover or perennials in the shady perimeter of your yard? Best wishes with your landscape.
