Answer: 
Hello,
The Smart Seed Sun & Shade blend requires between 4 to 8 hours of sunlight. You might want to consider the Smart Seed Dense Shade blend (Sku# 385-228) which only requires 2 to 4 hours of sunlight.
Thank you

Hi Randy,
Thanks for visiting our site.
Your question is a difficult one to answer. All plants need light to thrive, but not all need full sun. Fescue grass can tolerate less sun exposure than Bermuda grass, but some sun is needed.

Hi Randy,
Thanks for visiting our site.
Your question is a difficult one to answer. All plants need light to thrive, but not all need full sun. Fescue grass can tolerate less sun exposure than Bermuda grass, but some sun is needed.
Shade Central is a blend of different fescue grasses that thrive in different amounts of sun exposure. Some of the strains of seed in the blend can tolerate as little as two hours of sun per day, while other strains need more light.
This blend of different seeds increases your odds for successfully growing grass in yards that have varying degrees of shade.
If the shady area in your lawn receives less than a couple of hours of direct sunlight, it is unreasonable to expect any grass to thrive there.
Thank you for asking,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not one seed sprouted!! Very disappointed!! Followed instructions and not one seed sprouted!! AA waste of time & $$ May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smart Seed This is a good fill-in grass seed for a yard that has areas ranging from shade to full sunlight. April 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well Bought this for some bare or thin spots. It worked well. December 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent grass seed I tilled my yard and raked out most of the weeds! I then leveled my tilled yard with a 2x4 to get it as smooth as possible and then spead the smart seed with a hand held spreader and water at least 2-3 times a day until seed sprouts! my yarrd looks beautiful and people can't believe how nice and green my yard is! My yard is so nice and thick and is the nicest yard i've ever had! Also it's the nicest yard on my entire block! Like I said i just spread the seed on top of the ground and it looks super nice! 5 STARS - Great grass seed! You have to make sure to water your new seed at least 2-3 TIMES A DAY FOR GOOD GERMINATION! March 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Grass Seed I have seen in a long time! I will say that this grass seed does grow very fast seeing results within 1 weeks time. I recommend this type of grass seed for areas that you are looking to cover due to bald spots from animal urine or other spots that grass is hard to grow. I will continue to use this seed due to seeing fast results in such a short time. November 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Happy with Pennington We were seeding a small area of 1000 sq. ft. Purchased 5 tons of sifted black topsoil and spread it without much compaction. Seeded with Pennington and Watered as recommended on the bag. Less than half of the product emerged. I will contact Pennington seed for a recommendation, depending on that will determine my next step. I will keep you informed. July 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ok product ok product, I expected better results. Would not buy this product again. September 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No results... Bought a small bag to check on results but never did see any new grass come up...maybe the birds liked it but I would have preferred to see something to mow...Oh well. July 15, 2014
