Why does the grass not grow on a certain side of my house?

Many people have at least one side of their home where the grass does not grow well or even at all. Most of the time, fences that run along property lines create a narrow corridor as they run beside the house. This limits the amount of direct sunlight that reaches grass growing between the fence and the house, causing the grass to decline. Even without a fence, the first few feet of the ground from the foundation of the home on the north side is usually constantly shaded making the north side of a home a difficult area to grow grass.

In these areas that are constantly shaded, it is better to install rock, shrubs or a shade-tolerant ground cover rather than trying to grow grass.
