Shade Champ Grass Seed thrives where many other grasses don't—even in full shade. It's ideal for planting in front of the north side of buildings or under trees. Shade Champ is a mix of Creeping Red Fescue, Pennlawn Red Fescue, Chewings Red Fescue and Pizzazz Rye Grass. This cool season grass mixture can be sown in the early spring or early fall. One pound of seed covers approximately 150 square feet. When sowing Shade Champ Grass Mix, apply a basic lawn fertilizer at application time. Cover with a thin layer of mulch, sawdust or straw. Water evenly to allow for good germination. After the seed germinates and grass begins growing, water 1-2 inches every week until the grass is established. Zones 3-7.
