Growing Grass in Shade

Grass is not a shade plant and can struggle without enough sun.

It’s hot here in DFW and so it only makes sense that we plant a lot of large shade trees to help keep our homes cool during the summer months.

However, these shade trees simply don’t go hand in hand with a happy lawn. Turf grasses are by nature full sun plants. They don’t like shade and will decline once they are shaded too much. St. Augustine grass is often called a shade grass, but this is not accurate. While St. Augustine will certainly tolerate more shade than grasses like Bermuda, it still needs a good four hours of direct sunlight in order to be vigorous and healthy.
