How to grow grass in the shade?


Growing a lawn in the shade can be challenging. Our number one recommendation is to use a grass seed mixture designed for the shade like Jonathan Green Shady Nooks or Dense Shade.


Here are some other tips:

  • Remove trees or thin out some branches to allow more sunlight to enter the area
  • Apply Jonathan Green Mag-I-Cal to improve soil pH and quality
  • Do not over water or over fertilize the shady parts of your lawn
  • Seed in shaded areas after the fall leaves drop and are removed
