Shady Lawn Problem.
I have a lawn and it is in shade most of the time, and very thin. How can I improve it?
Shady lawn problem:In the spring you need to cover with a seed mixture suitable for shady areas.This normally contains wood meadow grass Poa Nemoralis.If you have a look around the garden section at your local Homebase you will find they sell grass seed for shady areas.Firstly,rake the area with a spring rake to remove all the old dead grass,then cover with seed, about 20 grams to the metre squared.Secondly,cover with a light top-dressing of garden topsoil or loam mixed with 25 percent sharp sand.To finish off water the whole area.The seed should grow in about two to three weeks.
Once the grass is established allow the shady areas to grow longer than the other areas;because of the shade the grass plants cannot stand as much cutting as grass plants in full sunlight.
