I live in an urban area in the midwest and have a small patch of dirt out behind my apartment, where I would like to try to grow grass. The area gets about 2 hours of direct sunlight in the summer (less in spring and fall). And there's currently nothing growing in the dirt. Any recommendations on the following: 1. how to prepare the soil 2. when to plant the grass 3. whether to use seeds or sod 4. what type of grass to grow 5. how much water is needed THANK YOU!!!
