I hope this is in the right forum. I'm in Western Kentucky close to where the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers meet so you all know the growing area I'm talking about. I have a lady that lives in a two story townhouse who had a large dog in the fenced back yard, he kept anything from growing back there. The dog is now gone and she wants me to try to plant some grass next spring. Not much sun gets back there. The house is two story with a high fence all around the grounds plus there are a lot of trees, both her own and her neighbors. I'll be able to cut some branches back but it will still be very shady back there. I had planed to till up the ground and add some peat to the dirt so it would not be so hard in the summer then plant grass, ferize and lime it. Maybe ever some straw to help keep it in place. Is that right or should I try it a different way. Also what kind of grass would have the best chance of growning back there in the heavy shade. Thanks for any help!!
