|Organic Lawn Tips from Gardens Alive|
Sunlight is an important factor in maintaining your lawn.
Most common grass varieties (fescues, Kentucky Bluegrass,
perennial rye) will only really stay lush and green in
full sun, though most will tolerate some shade. If your
property is partially shaded all day or receives less than
4 hours of full sun a day, you should consider sowing a
variety that is more suited to shade such as Tall fescue
'Rebel', Kentucky bluegrass 'Park', Red fescue 'Ruby',
zoysia matrella, St. Augustine or Chewings fescue. You may
