I recently moved into a house in Durham, NC... I live in a cul-de-sac, and it seems that everytime it rains, all our the water in our circle ends up in my backyard. Our house is the only one with a slight hill to it. Our entire backyard is pretty much just moss. It is very woody and shaded... we want to try and reseed the backyard, but I am not sure, first of all what kind of grass to put down, and second of all, if it rains as the forecast says it will next week, how can I stop it from all floating away??
If you have any suggestions as to what else we may plant or do to curb this moisture problem in the backyard, please say so. It is on the southeast side of the house, and it is very shady.... it seems to stay wet back there even if we haven't had rain for a week or so.
Thanks for any suggestions/help.
