Getting grass to grow in shade is often a problem. Interestingly, according to the Texas Extension article below, St. Augustine is the most shade tolerant warm season grass. If it is under a tree, mulch looks good and enriches the soil. I suggest contacting the extension office for a recommendation.

Some people go with an alternative to grass: shade groundcovers.
