Growing in Shade

I am getting several customers who want me to get their lawns growing well. The problem is that most of them have a tremendous amount of shade. I understand that all turfgrass needs photosynthesis, but is there a seed mixture that may work?

Please no smart answers like "cut down the trees." Although it is funny, it doen't help me.

I use Lesco's Great Lakes Super Shade Mix and it works great in full shade. Good Luck!
