    I have a customer who has a bermuda yard that has a lot of shady spots. In one corner they have an area that is full shade pretty much all day long. I suggested to them that I could turn that corner into a bed because the grass is very thin and it will only get worse because bermuda does not handle shade well at all. They do not want to do that, is there any full shade, warm season grass that I could seed that corner with?

    Mulch Beds IS the answer. But, Palmetto St. Augustine will do OK but even it like some sun. Be prepared to spoon feed the sod for a while. St. Augustine is only available in sod. Make sure soil will support the sod. Do a soil test for PH and nutrients first, and prepare soil well and finally make sure a watering supply is available. Yea, mulch beds and garden with annuals or Hostas would be a better choice.
