  • Gardening in the Shade
An often asked question about the changing lawn and landscape once the trees begin to mature is--What grows in shade?   This question often comes when homeowners are attempting to grow a lawn under large shade trees.  While turfgrass may no longer be an option, there are hundreds of shade-loving plants, both native and adapted, that will perform exceptionally in the shade areas from trees, fences and other structures in the landscape.  A well designed shade landscape might just be the favorite spot of the family during those hot summer months. Rusty Allen from North Haven Gardens will present the best tips and plants for gardening in those shady areas.
