Problem: Thin Grass and Moss Growing in Shade

Symptoms: Grass grows poorly in shady areas. Moss fills in just fine.

Solution: Check the pH of the soil. If it's okay, increase sunlight by pruning trees. Reduce watering and aerate. Switch to a more shade-tolerant grass, such as fine fescue, or remove the grass and replace with a shade-tolerant ground cover, such as pachysandra or vinca.
