I am looking at getting a new lawn. The lady said that she had a nice and full lawn at one time then her husband died and the grass when downhill. So I was wondering what tequniques are best for getting grass to grow in shaded areas. Right now there is grass on the property but it is not thick and healthy. What kind of grass would work best? Thanks for all the information. I would post pics of the yard but they are on my phone and I cant put them up here. If anyone would want to see the pics I can send them to you via text.
