    What type of turf does one use for this?

    Filtered sunlight is what some of those over-treed landscapes are only wishing for. When a homeowner won't even cut low branches away, the lawn is more or less doomed, and yet, some of these same folks have the bare areas seeded every spring, and see actual grass getting a toehold, which is then followed by their overload of trees leafing out and shading the new grass into oblivion.

    Another one is the high septic tank. Heats up every summer and cooks. I try to them to accept it and plan around it. A nice wiskey barrel right over the cover with mulch and plantings around it. At least then when it is built up it dosnt look rediculous

    Best luck is a improved rye Kentucky blue mix.

    Another one that works is what we call sports turf but its dwarf fescue\blue grass mix.



    Like the other have said, you need to get some indirect sunlight.
