Shady Lawn Help!
Hi All -- Hoping someone can chime in with some tips on care for our shady lawn. We are in MA, with only about 1/4 acre.
When we bought it four years ago, it was full of moss and bald spots. We've made leaps and bounds over that time, but still crave that thick, green lawn that many of our neighbors achieve. Although our grass has come in, it is thin, and the roots seem shallow (it is easily pulled up by raking, or thanks to our playful pup).
We apply lime frequently and overseed in both spring and fall. Any tips on fertilizer types or schedules? Any other general knowledge I should have when dealing with a shady lawn? We've already got a large portion covered in pachysandra (which my husband hates), so I'd love to be able to save the little lawn we have! Thanks so much.
