What sort of lawn can I grow in the shade of a big tree?

Submitted: 02:36PM, 20 Oct 2009
Answer: Possibly no lawn at all. Grasses love sun and do best in as much sun as possible. Cool season grasses tend to have more shade tolerance but, obviously, are more suited to cooler climates.

Turf type tall fescues (such as in Yates Lush Droughtsmart Lawn Seed) are reasonably shade tolerant. If grass always fades away in a particular part of the lawn, then it would be best to switch to paving or shade tolerant ground covers.
