Dear friends,
I want to know what is the most shade tolerant grass for lawn, I live in Lahore. Also kindly tell me the local/Urdu names of the grass that you will suggest.

Thanks!

I've tried 3 so far; the desi paki variety which disappears or turns brown in the winter. Dhaka grass, which fairs reasonably well, and Korean grass which is best in shade.
I don't know what the real names are, but korean grass is your best friend.
