Shady area = floratam sod, if its too shady for that then its a landscape bed. Don't try and force grass to grow under conditions it isn't meant to grow (that goes for all plants) Bermuda is great for hydroseeding in the south, Bahia sux and zoysia...forget about it, takes way to long to germinate. If its not erosion control, and it's going to be a residential....use straight Bermuda and no nurse grass. I've had much better luck with a mono stand of Bermuda from the get go.
