Rachelle, While there are some shade tolerant grasses, for the most part grasses don't do well in locations such as under tress and other extreamly shady places. I suggest that you look for groundcovers. Ivy and other lowgrowing perennials might work for you. For specifics, I suggest that you talk to a local extention agent or vist a nursery or greenhouse near you. They can give you more specifics about what grows well in your area.
