My grass is thriving in partial shade and dwindling in full sun
My St Augustine (sodded by bldr on our new lot 1.5 years ago) is yellow, dried, and has Bermuda style grass growing in the areas of my yard that get 100% sunlight. I have tried all sorts of watering schedules but can't get it to grow green and soft.
I know it has the potential to because it DOES grow green, soft and full in the areas of my yard that get partial shade (along fences, near house under roof-eves, in the shade of neighbor's tall trees).
I usually hear opposite: that it is hard to grow grass in shade. Is my lawn confused?
