I am referring to the complete lifecycle of the forestlawn as a whole... there are no tricks or gimmicks that one can do to make it work... any deviation from grass' natural ability to survive in a particular environment, reduces its chances of survival... it is a complete package that doesn't involve the typical full sun turf that has become so artificially maintained, that growth in the shade has become an impossible endeavor...

For that reason, the introduction of root inhibitor to forestlawn is a deal breaker...
True enough. I avoid treating lawns under trees in General and only lightly in the transition from sun to shade.
