I've got about a 150 sq ft area between my house and garage that gets very little sun. It's always supported some type of smattering of grass and little broad leaf things that pop up and fill in during the summer. This past year I've really worked the topsoil over in that area and just about all the life forms have been turned under. I'd like to get it greened up again but I figure I had better ask some professionals about what kind of grass seed and possibly broad leaf plant seeds I should start out with, considering the low light considerations.

What kind of grass might grow well in this little patch of land? I'm in Lexington, Ky, btw.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum Bradley. I an not an expert at anything so take my advise with a grain of salt....lol
I Googled this and came up with this site which may help...

Also, maybe your soil in that area is not very good, Does it get a decent amount of moisture in that area?

Thanks so much for that article. It suggested the lowest sun requirement for any grass variety I've found so far so I'm going with their suggestion from Scott's.

Moisture seems to be ok. It's well shaded so it's never suffered from being dried out. I suppose I could analyze a soil sample and see if it could use any kind of supplementation.
