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

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.
