Jonathan Green Black Beauty® Shady Nooks Grass Seed is our most shade-tolerant grass seed mixture. This grass seed survives and thrives in both wet and dry shady areas where other turfgrass mixtures fail. What makes this proprietary shady seed mixture so great is the unique blend of Black Beauty® turf-type tall fescues and hard fescues.  Because shady lawns receive less sunlight they perform less photosynthesis which means they require less food and do not respond well to overfeeding, especially with high-nitrogen fertilizers. Use only Jonathan Green’s Seeding and Sodding Fertilizer which contains phosphorus to encourage deep root growth. This seed germinates in 10 – 14 days. The most shade-tolerant turfgrass mixture on the market Grows in deep shade right up to the base of trees Requires less fertilizer and water than competitor’s mixtures Survives and thrives in deeply shaded lawns with either damp or dry soil Germinates in 10 - 14 days Coverage: 3 lb Bag Overseeding – Seeds up to 2,250 sq. ft.
