Do you have shaded areas on your lawn that always produces badly growing, or weak grass? Re-seed with Shade Grass Seed and you’ll have a great, green lawn, no matter what your lighting conditions are.

Shaded areas on your lawn cause problems because grass needs light to thrive – any shade and low light conditions have a big effect on a grass’s effectiveness. That’s why we supply this Shady brand of grass seed, to give you great grass even in shaded and low light conditions.

As an added benefit, the attributes required for thriving in a shaded area are very much in common with those required for surviving drought and disease. Shady Grass Seed is very drought tolerant and can save your lawn in a hosepipe ban. It can also survive or resist common lawn diseases which may harm another grass seed variety. In addition, these attributes mean that the lawn requires less fertiliser than most grasses and can thrive even with little maintenance

This special blend of native fescue and bent is specifically formulated to thrive in darker, low light areas. The Shady Grass Seed is naturally slow growing, and the seed varieties are all ones that can thrive very well in shady conditions.

Common reasons you might need this seed – you have a:

  • Small, urban lawn, surrounded by buildings which shade much of the grass.
  • Large lawn interspersed with trees, causing shaded patches beneath each tree.

Shady Grass seed is a great choice for any garden that has slightly adverse conditions, and has the following main features:

  • Great tolerance to shade, shaded areas and low light.
  • High tolerance to drought and dry areas.
  • Higher than average tolerance to lawn diseases due to it’s hardy nature.
  • Low fertiliser requirement.
  • Ideal for use underneath widely ranging canopies of trees.
