Which Grass Is Good For My Poplar Filled Yard?

Q: My back yard in the spring/summer is shaded by a dense canopy of poplar
trees. In fall/winter the yard gets sunshine most of the day. I am not sure
which grass would be most successful back there. 

A: I think one of the turf-type fescue blends would work best. A named blend
combines two or three different varieties of seed which thrive under different
conditions of shade, drought or soil type. Look for brands like Rebel,
Pennington, Vigoro and Scotts. Generic Kentucky 31 fescue rarely does well
in this kind of situation.
