Best sod for shade and high traffic
I live in Houston, TX and have St. Augustine planted in back yard. However, due to heavy shade in half the yard (combination of tree canopy and the position of my house relative to the path of the sun) and two Basenji's ( dogs) who run on it extensively the grass is now mostly gone. I would like to have the back yard re- sodded with a grass that is tolerant of both shade and high traffic. Does such a thing exist? Irrigation is not a problem as I have an in ground system. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
