Management Practices for Growing Grass in Shady Lawns

Growing grass in the shade is a problem for which there are no easy answers. Grass is a full-sun plant and when planted in shaded areas (defined as a site that receives less than 4 to 5 hours of direct sunlight daily) it performs poorly. The filtering effect of trees significantly reduces the amount and quality of light grasses receive.  This has an adverse effect on photosynthesis, the process that produces energy needed for the grasses to grow. What we see from this effect are grasses that are thin, weak, and have a lower tolerance to disease, drought, and foot-traffic stress.

Devil’s What?

If your world of plants only consists of what you see for sale at a garden center or box store, then prepare yourself.  Wharton and Barbour’s book Trees and Shrubs of Kentucky covers over 280 species of woody plants native to Kentucky.
