Hi guys, I am looking at a lawn that will grow well in shade. I have planted paspalum and taiwan grass earlier, but both have been massive failures . I came across a lawn called KOREAN VELVET GRASS and was blown away by its sheer beauty. Is it true that this can grow well in shade? I have a huge tree that covers most of the area. Sunlight is an issue, some scattered sunlight does get in, but only just! I am based in Pune, India so temperatures are around 20-25 most of the year and never below 10 degrees celcius. I'm also attaching a snap. this is my third attempt now so really don't want to go wrong :( I really am keen on the velvet grass too ( zoysia tunifolia). Any other landscaping ideas are most welcome :)
