    I don’t know if I’m overthing this, but I’m getting ready to spread some topsoil and spread some seed. The property is in a fairly wooded area. So lots of shade. I’ve never had to make yard in a wooded setting yet so was curious what seed I should look for or if I’m over thinking it.

    Not overthinking it at all. Not thinking enough.
    Most grass will fail with less than 4 hours of sunlight.
    This is a problematical situation. Be realistic. Do not expect any grass to grow within 6 feet of a forest. Make that 8 feet on the north side.

    What type of seed? Well...ajuga is the only ground cover that can be planted as seed.
