Which Turf is Right For Me | Shade


When purchasing a new lawn the first question you need to consider is how much shade does the area get?

Most turf species will survive in full sun however, if the area receives more than 2-3 hours shade then you will need to stay away from a couch lawn and choose more shade tolerant lawns such as Sir Walter Buffalo Grass and Zoysia.
