Could one grow a lawn in semi/full shade


  • Not easy but there are varieties some thrives quite well in the shade, It's needs more frequent fertilizing and not to been mowed to short.

    If it's to short moss will easily emerge so you have to sprinkle chalk at least twice a year.

    Plenty of grass seed suitable for shadier areas Luca. If you take a look in your local GC or Diy store  you'll get a good choice. image

    My front garden is north west facing, so it's in shade a lot of the time. I use a weed and feed product in spring and cut regularly - that keeps it healthy.  If necessary, it gets another weed/feed in late summer.   It's never cut too short. Never take more than about a third of the length off as cutting to o short weakens the  grass and allows weeds to dominate. 

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
