Grass in shady areas needs less fertilizer than grass growing in full sun. Spreading a thin layer of compost is a great way to give shady lawns a boost in early spring. If you plan to aerate, spread compost after aerating. It’s also a good idea to apply compost before overseeding thin, shady turf. The compost layer should be thin enough that you can still see grass blades after it’s applied. Use a push broom to spread it and work it between individual grass plants.
