My backyard has been slowly turning to moss. It’s narrow and mostly surrounded by tall trees, so sunlight is limited. I’ve pruned the trees way back, but I’m also considering putting some shade-tolerant grass seed out there, which seems to be standard advice in these situations.
Is there a downside to planting shade-tolerant grass? Is it inherently less sun-tolerant? Is it more stiff, sparse, predatory, detonation-prone, or…something else that makes it less than ideal?
