Hi, my grass is balding, patchy and dull! Unfortunately it does not get much sun as my back garden is very shady, any suggestion on what I can do to help my lawn be green and healthy??
Thanks for any help.



Hi Jowilson and welcome to GoY. Get rid of the grass and put down astroturf, pebbles, wood chips - basically anything that does not need sunlight!

Or you could try reseeding it with a variety of grass seed designed for shady places. Or flag it leaving some spaces for shade tolerant plants.
