    Common Problems

    Your garden is an intricately balanced ecosystem. If an aspect falls out of balance, it may have a profound effect on the health and look of the rest of your garden. Your lawn is no different – and unfortunately disease can strike in the blink of an eye.

Growing Shade Grass

It is possible to grow shade grass, but you need to follow a solid maintenance regimen to do so. If you struggle with the shade grass, get in the help of experts such as LawnSafe. We will not only give you advice regarding the watering and shading aspects, but will also ensure that even the grass in the shade grows well and stays green.

A few tips on the growing and maintenance of shade grass are shared below to help you get started.

Cut off branches

Proper pruning is required to allow sunlight in. The sunlight must reach the grass, and with skilful pruning you can reach the goal without making the trees look ugly. Also be sure to trim the large shrubs on the edge of the lawn to ensure that the grass on the edge also gets enough sunlight.

Loosen the soil

Compacted soil makes it difficult for the grass roots to reach deep where the nutrients and oxygen are. Aerating helps to loosen the soil and to detangle the roots. We offer specialized aerating services to restore the balance.


Get a bit of compost into the soil to ensure it has enough nutrients. We also provide a composting service.

Top dressing

Spread top dressing to help the lawn get enough nutrients. We are able to perform this task for you.

Plant grass fit for shade

It is important to plant grass that can grow in the shade such as rye, bluegrass, and fescue which are more shade resistant than other types of grass.


Fertilizer is important to ensure root and grass strength, vigour, and colour as well as strength to fight off weeds and pests. We assess the state of the lawn for free and provide the perfect fertilizer mix. Factors such as moisture content, type of grass, temperature, shade, and more are taken into consideration when we prepare the mix.
