Hello. Do not know anything about grass, and i have used the search button, but i cannot figure it out. I live in Tyler Texas(east texas. Its hot, humid, and pretty shady where I live. There is a small patch of grass in the yard that looks like st. augestine, but will not branch off. Im looking for a good summer and winter grass that is good or shady areas. Thanks in advance for any help given.

St Augustine is a good choice, but does not have great winter color. Same with Zoysia grass……may be brown in winter, but takes all the heat. Tall fescue is also an option, although techically not a shade grass, it will do ok- as long as its not dense shade. It has good winter color if healthy going into winter. (must be fertilized in fall) Check with a local sod farm to see what type tall fescue they are growing. Its important to get the right type for your area, and the local sod growers will carry what gives the customer the best chance for success.
