Grass Recommendation – Sun and Shade Yard

recommendation sun/shade

Q: I have a sun/shade yard with light usage. What is your recommendation for grass?

A: The combination of sun and shade would be tolerated by zoysia, St.
Augustine or fescue grass. Zoysia sod could look nice but it’s expensive. St.
Augustine sod is rarely available. Fescue seed, planted in spring, would give
you a nice-looking yard and would be less expensive than the other two. Look
for a turf-type blend of different fescue varieties. Do not plant Kentucky 31
fescue for your lawn. This seed is inexpensive but the grass will look rough
and clumpy.
