    I have a customer who wants some seed spread in the backyard. They currently have zoysia in one area and want something close to it that is "hardy" and "shade tolerant". Apparently the put some zoysia sod last year and had trouble with drought and moles...and maybe too much shade? Is there a zoysia that is shade tolerant? If not, what is my best bet?

    How much shade are we talking (like how many hours?)?

    Not about how many hours. Backyard with lots of trees.
