What types of lawn grass or ground covering plants grows best in shaded areas?


We have a tall maple that casts a great deal of shadow over our back yard. We are thinking of trying to seed the area with some type of grass that will grow in shade, and if not grass then an attractive ground covering species. Any suggestions appreciated!
