A mixture of turf-type tall fescue is the recommended grass for our area in full sun.
For part shade, a fine fescue mix is appropriate.
In deep, full shade, all grasses have difficulty and many people overseed continuously. Another way to handle those areas is to use a ground cover or other planting, or mulch.
