Turf is best suited for full sunlight. Highly shaded areas cause the thinning of turf. Selective pruning of trees will allow more sunlight and will help reduce this effect. There are also varieties of turf such as (St. Augustine) “Seville”, an excellent choice for shade, however, this hybrid performs well in full sun too. It is important to make the proper choice of plant material based on its tolerance for shade or sun.
