Heavy shade is not the right environment for grass or lush lawns.
Shade and Grass Don’t Get Along
Shade and grass do not work well together. Shade from trees, structures, and other objects can cause your lawn to struggle for needed sunlight. This problem is manifested as thin grass growth, straggly grass, and bare patches. Often there will be additional problems with shade-loving weeds. Lawns with shade cannot handle traffic from pets, children or mowing. The experienced and licensed professionals at Rainbow LawnCare are your best bet to solve this problem.
Even the Best Shade Grass Seed Can Be Challenged
Even grass species that are designed for shaded areas need a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight per day to remain healthy. Seed will germinate, but will not provide a lasting lawn. Rainbow LawnCare can provide you with a lawn in these areas, but it will require yearly seeding.
Excess watering can also create problems for shady areas as they don’t have a chance to dry out sufficiently. Wet, shaded conditions can create favorable conditions for lawn diseases.
