Why Is A Shade Tolerant Lawn Important?

September 27, 2017

When choosing a grass type for your new lawn it is essential to consider ‘shade’.

The reason for this is that some grasses don’t like shade. An example of this is Couch which likes to be in full sun otherwise it dies off. This can lead to brown patches which also allows weeds to take hold.

There can be many different areas of a lawn receiving different levels of shade throughout the day. Shade can be cast from buildings, plants, trees and other objects.
