My house is on a wooded lot and the front lawn gets a good amount of sun, but the back lawn gets only a few hours a day. The back lawn died on me this winter and 2 winters ago. It did not die last year because we did not get any snow to speak of. The 2 years it did die we got alot of snow. The problem I think is that come fall because it is somewhat shaddy the grass stays damp. When winter comes and we get snow the weight of the snow seems to kill the gras. When all the snow melted this spring my grass was all flat and pushed into the dirt. I raked it all out and it is all dead looking with very little green grass. Can any of you give me any suggestions. What can I do to stop this, I do not want to have to reseed the back lawn after every winter it snows. Are there any professionals in my area that can give me some advise. Thanks.
