Turffalo's 'Shadow Turf'
I decided to start a seperate thread concerning the grass type I'm experimenting with in my back yard. The type is called "Shadow Turf" as sold by the Turffalo company. It was developed at Texas Tech University. Supposedly it will thrive in areas recieving as little as 10% sunlight. That describes the worst areas in my back yard, so if the claims are true it'll be the answer to my lawn prayers! Zoysia in my favorite type of grass. Its ability to crowd out weeds, develop dense turf & do well in hot dry conditions make it superior to other grasses that grow in my area, zone 5B. The zoysia in my front yard is awesome! I just love the stuff. If I can establish something similar in the back yard it'll be great!
