    Default Pancake :D:D

    Hi,

    I have a lawn question.
    Our backyard is about 75% shaded by a big beautiful tree. It is so nice in the summer. The problem is , My lawn is always wet it seems.

    We need to over seed and get some more grass back there. My DH and I are arguing about when to put the grass seed down. I know this will mean atleast 2 weeks out of our backyard. but I really want to be able to get lots of use out of it this summer.

    When is the earliest I can start over seeding my yard.

    Our current grass is very sparse and we have a few almost potholes we will be filling in with top soil.

    So please share with me , how I can have a beautiful shaded lush lawn

    I'm here kinda! Well first of with a large tree in the yard you will NEVER have a lush lawn. Everything is working against you. Even grass made for 'shade' requires sun. Also the roots of the tree that pull in water are in the top few inches of soil and the tree will always win when a lawn competes with it for water.

    That being said I know you will give it a good fight and try for that lawn. Here is a link that says everything I would tell you without having to type it out. Seeding a Lawn
